Power to Gas - a System analysis


The study „Power-to-Gas- a System analysis. Market and technology scouting and analysis” presents a comprehensive system analysis of the power to gas technology in Austria. The system analysis was performed by an international and national market- and technology scouting. The goal of the study was to investigate the chances and possibilities of Austrian companies and Austrian research institutions in an international competition in the field of power to gas. Based on this, an economic and systematic importance of power to gas that could contribute to a further promotion and development of power to gas systems in Austria was presented.
