Power-to-gas push no surprise – opinion

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

The joint power-to-gas (PtG) project by power and gas transmission grid operators Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE) should not come as a surprise, as especially the gas industry worries about its future in a decarbonised Germany, writes Andreas Mihm in an opinion piece in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Carbon-neutral gas produced from renewable electricity could be used in the existing pipelines, storages, and end-use infrastructure. No one knows whether PtG will become competitive in the end, writes Mihm. “Still, nothing is won unless risks are taken.”
