Power-to-Gas technologies and their relevance to the energy sector

16.00-18.30 REKK Energy Futures VII.

18 of February, 2020 - Corvinus University Budapest, Faculty Club, 1093 Budapest Fővám tér 8

The aim of the REKK Power-To-Gas Forum was the dissemination of the latest results of the P2G technology. We discussed the types of the P2G technologies and their potential usage. The event focused on the P2G technologies with methanation (Power-To-Methane). Leading experts from Europe presented their experiences with the pilot projects.

During the forum, we also presented the status of the pilot projects in Hungary and the competitiveness of the technology under different gas and electricity prices. After the presentations, participants of the round table discussion explored the future of the technology in Hungary and the potential obstacles.
