IFAISTOS - Intelligent electroFuel production for An Integrated STOrage System
The main objective of IFAISTOS is to make the Power-to-gas technology a viable solution for long-term storage.
Project manager at MDU
Synthetic fuels have the potential for a substantial contribution to sustainable mobility, providing also the possibility to store (even seasonal) surplus electric energy. A broad interest in power-to-gas has begun to grow (especially in Europe) in recent years, driven by the increasing share of wind and solar power. Indeed, this technology is considered a long-term solution for renewable electricity surplus storage through gas production. The PtG technology represents a link between the power and gas grids.
- integrated, by recycling carbon dioxide and exploiting renewable electrical energy
- intelligent, by providing flexibility and efficiency through its optimal management
- interoperable, by bridging electrical energy grid with natural gas networks and transport sector
