Time to talk about #EnergyEmergency & how to protect the EU & the region👇
On 7 Dec, join @RCaliminte, GIE Deputy Secretary General, at @Eurogas #ARCCzechia Conference to learn more about the #EnergyTransition & the role of gas infrastructure in the 🇨🇿

24/11/22: #EnergyCouncil agreed on a regulation aiming at enhancing #solidarity via better coordination of #gas purchases, exchanges of gas across borders& reliable price benchmarks enhancing.

#EnergyTransparency is an essential part of the 🧩. GIE is a pivotal partner.

💡A “bottom-up” approach to decarbonising #buildings can lead to carbon neutrality, empowering consumers, energy communities, local authorities & suppliers.

So with the buildings sector & small- & medium-sized businesses, we've released a new joint paper: http://bit.ly/3ATLF0u

🗓️@MARCOGAZ, together with @Ener_Community and @GIEBrussels, are pleased to organise the 7th 2022 Monthly #Methane #Monday webinar next week, on 28th November from 14:30-15:30, this time on #MIST- support to #gas system operators to combat #methane #emissions.🏭

Interested in a regional analysis of the status of #decarbonisation in Central & South Eastern #Europe? Here you go👇

MéthyCentre

By Storengy (France)

MéthyCentre is a project that aims at demonstrating the technical and economic feasibility the first Power-to-Gas process in France that combines methanisation (biomethane production), electrolysis (hydrogen production) and methanation (synthetic methane production). The site is located in the Centre-Val de Loire region of central France. The renewable methane produced will be injected to the local grid for domestic (heat, cooking…) and industrial needs (heat, chemical industry), but also used as a fuel for transports.

Timeline of the project:

  • 2020: building and start of use of the electrolysis
  • 2021: building and start of use of the methanisation
  • 2022: putting the MéthyCentre into service: start of the P2G experimental phase
  • 2023: end of the experimental phase of the demonstrator
  • 2036: 15 years of methanisation operating

The project will come into service in 2021.

The hydrogen will be used for transports.

The organic matter used for the methanisation process will come from local farms.

Technical aspects

  • MéthyCentre will consume 1 GWh of electricity each year, that will come from renewable sources thanks to certificates of origin.
  • The hydrogen production consumes water whereas methanation generates it. In total, MéthyCentre will consume around 400m3 of water a year, which corresponds to the annual domestic consumption of 8 inhabitants.
  • Key data:
    • 50m3/h of green gases production
    • gas consumption of 800 inhabitants
    • 5kg/day of hydrogen production
    • electrolyser power: 250 KW

Contribution to energy transition

MéthyCentre provides a solution for a crucial challenge : transforming renewable electricity (and the CO2 contained in the biogas) into large quantities of hydrogen and synthetic methane in order to meet customers’ needs, whether for green mobility powered by hydrogen and biogas (bio-CNG) or for injection into the natural gas network.
