EUGINE co-signs the “Hydrogen Initiative” of the Austrian Presidency of the Council

Due to the ongoing energy transition, increasing shares of variable renewable energy sources (V-RES) only producing electricity when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing are being introduced into the energy mix. This variability generates an increasing challenge: how to balance tomorrow’s energy system in a secure, cost-efficient and sustainable way. Power-to-Gas in combination with flexible engine power plants can be the answer to this question. While overproduction is balanced by generating green fuels (hydrogen, syngas, etc.), supply gaps are covered by fast starting engines burning the green fuels when needed.

As green hydrogen and related green fuels (such as syngas) could provide a major contribution to the success of Europe’s energy transition, EUGINE was pleased to co-sign the “Hydrogen Initiative” launched by the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
