Research project

The project STORE&GO

The STORE&GO project is being carried out from 2016 to 2020 and is part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research framework program. The project involves 27 institutions from research and industry from six European countries. In STORE&GO, research focuses on the technical, economic and legal framework conditions for the use of power-to-methane.

System integration as a research question

Power-to-methane is a key technology for Europe's future energy supply, grid convergence, electricity storage and use in mobility. Three power-to-methane plants are being built at STORE&GO. Two plants feed the produced gas into the existing gas networks and the third plant liquefies the gas and stores it in a tank.

The project will investigate the integration of power-to-methane technologies into a future European energy supply, for which various scenarios will be designed and evaluated. Business cases for applications of these technologies will be developed within the project. In addition, the legal and regulatory framework conditions for the dissemination of the technology are being investigated. A further specialist unit is concerned with the question of the social acceptance of these technologies among the population.
