Greening of gaseous fuels: consequences for the user
Policy developments and the public opinion make that natural gas will gradually be replaced by renewable gases and electric energy. Examples of potentially renewable gases are biomethane, hydrogen and synthetic natural gas. The presentation will discuss what the effect of changing gas qualities is for the end user and if a direct use of renewable electric energy is not better than using such electricity for the production of other energy carriers. Ultimately, renewable energy is also scarce and it has to be used in the economically and environmentally optimum way.
- Will the future be a hydrogen economy, an electrical economy or both;
- How important is a good and constant gas quality for the end user;
- What might be the costs implications for the end user.
