Underground Sun Storage 2030 - Start

RAG Austria AG is the largest energy storage company in Austria and one of the leading technical storage operators in Europe. As a partner of renewable energies, the company develops innovative and forward-looking energy technologies around "green gas". Our central corporate focus is the storage, conversion and demand-based conditioning of energy in the form of gaseous energy carriers. In this way, RAG Austria AG makes an indispensable contribution to achieving the ambitious climate targets and to the sustainable supply of raw materials and energy in Austria. Our goal is to provide our customers with safe, efficient, environmentally friendly and affordable energy and gas storage services in a long-term and responsible manner.

Project Goals

Field test and operational experience for field testing and in-depth know-how of hydrogen behaviour in natural gas reservoirs.

"Hydrogen is the missing piece of the puzzle for a completely CO2-neutral energy system: it can be produced in a climate-neutral way, used directly in industry, produce environmentally friendly heat and electricity and represent a fuel of the future. But the decisive factor is its large-volume storage and transportability in the existing almost invisible gas infrastructure. Only in this way will we have sufficient and, above all, demand-oriented green energy available even in times of low sun and low wind," says RAG CEO Markus Mitteregger, emphasising the importance of energy storage in geological gas reservoirs and its distribution.
