The urgent need to take action to decarbonise and reduce the global carbon footprint is seen globally. Countries, regions, significant industrial players and companies are setting renewable energy or decarbonisation targets.
To fully overcome renewable intermittency, energy systems must employ all available flexibility solutions, from energy storage which discharges over a period of hours – to thermal balancing using future fuels, which can be transported and stored over many months.
The influx of renewables entering power systems is creating the right conditions for excess clean electricity to be used as a raw material for new types of hydrogen-based, carbon neutral future fuels.
Together with flexible power plants, future fuels can meet the critical demand for long-term storage solutions that balance grids in an affordable and sustainable way.
