SuperP2G-Closing Conference on March 23rd 2023 in Brussels

„Synergies utilising renewable power regionally by means of Power-To-Gas” SuperP2G interconnects leading P2G initiatives in five countries, ensuring joint learning. Each national project focuses on different challenges, where researchers team up with local need-owners to co-create solutions. SuperP2G focuses on improving existing evaluation tools including open access, as well as develop a new open tool. […]

Techno-economic optimization and system integration of power-to-gas at different geographical scale in Europe

Decarbonization targets and global political instabilities push the European Commission to elaborate strategies to ensure more affordable and secure energy. Within these strategies, e.g., RePowerEU, Power to Gas (P2G) is foreseen to become a key play for the successful transition towards a sustainable energy system. A rigorous methodology to investigate P2G plants’ potential and optimize […]

Levelized costs of lowcarbon hydrogen production technologies

The levelized costs of hydrogen production consist of several components, including investment and operational costs, input costs for energy, water, biomass and oxygen as well as costs of carbon. The breakdown of these cost components for the LCOH of the four different technologies in the base case are discussed and the four technologies will be compared. […]

Economic Value of Power-to-Hydrogen Conversion System in Flexibility of Medium-Voltage Distribution Network (MV-DN)

This study analysed the potential role of P2G systems to solve congestion issues. The main conclusions from this research were: Electrolyzers are able to play positive role in reducing congestion in the MV-DV in case of receiving incentives. From system point of view, dynamic electricity prices as incentives have positive influence on improving net operation revenue. Developing of electrolyzer in medium-voltage distribution grid for […]

Spatial-economic analysis of low carbon hydrogen supply to the European market

This study analysed low carbon hydrogen supply alternatives to the European market. The key results were the following: Production of hydrogen using renewable electricity is most competitive in Morocco Production of hydrogen using renewable electricity is not competitive compared to SMR with CCS production For larger distances, transport as ammonia is most competitive for that […]

Incorporating Optimal Operation Strategies into Investment Planning for Wind/Electrolyser System

As a conducive and prevalent technique for producing green hydrogen, hybrid wind-based electrolyser system requires both effective planning and operation to realize its techno-economic value. Majority of the existing studies are focused on either of these two, but none of them sufficiently emphasize on their interrelationship. In this paper, we propose a two-stage multi-objective optimization […]

Data-driven robust optimization for optimal scheduling of power to methanol

Power-to-Methanol is a newly emerging technology to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors. However, little research on its flexible and optimal operation has been proposed. In this paper, a grid-connected Power-to Methanol system is introduced, modelled, simulated and optimized for its daily operation by considering its participation in day-ahead electricity markets. The system builds on a real-life application […]

Data-driven scheme for optimal day-ahead operation of a wind hydrogen system under multiple uncertainties

Hydrogen is believed as a promising energy carrier that contributes to deep decarbonization, especially for the sectors hard to be directly electrified. A grid-connected wind/hydrogen system is a typical configuration for hydrogen production. For such a system, a critical barrier lies in the poor cost-competitive-ness of the produced hydrogen. Researchers have found that flexible operation […]
