The Energy Institute at JKU Linz (EI-JKU), as an interdisciplinary research institution, has comprehensive competence in the fields of energy law, energy economics and energy technology and carries out research work in these three areas. The Energy Institute has been working intensively in the field of power-to-gas for eleven years. It has been able to build up extensive expertise in techno-economic and ecological assessment as well as legal analysis in connection with the development of PtG value chains. This know-how is rounded off with the competence to carry out qualitative environmental analysis to develop recommendations for action for successful technology implementation.
The Energy Institute pursues the following goals in the project:
"Large-volume H2 storage will ensure security of supply with renewable electricity and thus contribute to decarbonisation. In order for this to be successful, in addition to the technical feasibility, the answer to the question of an advantageous systemic integration of large-volume H2 storage into the energy system is also central."
