„<br />

I think the reality is that there will still be<br />

plenty of gas being used from our reliable<br />

like-minded sources well into the 2030s<br />

and 40s. There will be less. [...] We also<br />

have the possibility to bring biomethane,<br />

hydrogen. There are different options –<br />

and we will need them all.“<br />

E-<strong>world</strong> Kick-off | February 20<strong>23</strong><br />

Three days, three main topics, and one slogan. Under the motto "Energy Perspectives for<br />

20<strong>23</strong> and Beyond", top-class experts discussed the future of energy supply from February<br />

14 – 16. How will the transformation to a green power system succeed? What does the<br />

current crisis mean for the future of the gas market? What opportunities do data-driven<br />

applications offer and what should energy security concepts look like?<br />

Dr. James Watson, Secretary General, Eurogas<br />

„<br />

Data security is like electricity.<br />

No one actually needs data<br />

security. They are looking for<br />

the outcome, not for the security.<br />

The same with electricity.“<br />

A varied program of fireside chats, keynotes and<br />

discussion formats offered not only exciting insights,<br />

but also numerous opportunities for professional<br />

exchange. With more than 600 participants, 17 speakers<br />

and 3 sponsors, the kick-off event to the regular<br />

E-<strong>world</strong> date in February was a complete success.<br />

Day 1<br />

On the first day, the focus was on the topic of future<br />

energy supply. Dr. Roman Dudenhausen began by<br />

talking with Tobias Federico about the new energy<br />

market design after the fateful year 2022. Tobias Federico,<br />

Tim Meyerjürgens, Christine Müller and Sonja<br />

Müller-Dib then discussed the question "How can the<br />

conversion to a green power system succeed?".<br />

Day 2<br />

The second day explored the question "Ways to a climate-neutral<br />

gas economy: What do the current crises<br />

mean for the energy transition future?". Dr. Heiko Lohmann<br />

spoke in a fireside chat with James Watson about<br />

current developments in the European gas market. The<br />

subsequent panel discussion with Dr. Thomas Gößmann,<br />

Dr. Egbert Laege and Dr. Sopna Sury exchanged<br />

views on the significance of the current crisis for the<br />

future of the gas market and the gas phase-out.<br />

Day 3<br />

Day three of the kick-off was dedicated to the topic of<br />

data security in the energy industry. It started with<br />

a keynote by Elad Shaviv on the resilience of critical<br />

infrastructure. The subsequent panel discussion with<br />

Andreas Lange, Jan Fischer and Torsten Schekat addressed<br />

the topic of data security in cloud applications and<br />

sought approaches to solutions on how to implement<br />

them in the energy industry. In another panel entitled<br />

"Future now: Opportunities of data-driven applications<br />

for a good energy future", Michael Roeder, Knut Hechtfischer<br />

and Clemens Pompey discussed the question of<br />

how "secure development" can succeed.<br />

Potential pathways towards a<br />

climate-neutral Europe<br />

The EU Green Deal sets out for the first time a clear goal at the European level to achieve<br />

Europe-wide climate neutrality by 2050. While the goal is clear, the path remains uncertain.<br />

Energy Brainpool has developed scenarios on how the dramatic transformation of<br />

the energy system can be fulfilled.<br />

To outline the development paths for climate-neutral<br />

energy scenarios, dimensions are defined which<br />

benchmark a suitable way of achieving the goal. The<br />

energy policy triangle of environmental sustainability,<br />

security of supply and economic efficiency provides a<br />

fundamental impetus. Due to the recent developments,<br />

the aspect of security of supply is being sharpened<br />

to the independence of energy sources from imports.<br />

Economic efficiency is reflected in the price level on the<br />

wholesale power market. Environmental sustainability<br />

is directly included as a dimension. Climate neutrality<br />

will be achieved by using renewable fuels, such as green<br />

hydrogen, biofuels and emission-neutral synthetic<br />

hydrocarbons. Another dimension is the level of electrification.<br />

The focus here is on the coupling of the power<br />

sector with other energy-intensive sectors such as<br />

transport, industry and buildings. Applications of today<br />

will gradually be powered by electricity in the future.<br />

Last but not least, the share of renewables also plays a<br />

key role in designing climate-neutral scenarios.<br />

On the basis of these six dimensions, three EU Green<br />

Deal-compliant energy scenarios have been designed<br />

and evaluated.<br />

„<br />

In the strongly H 2<br />

-focused<br />

decarbonisation scenario,<br />

the Europe-wide H 2<br />

demand<br />

in 2050 amounts to more<br />

than 2,200 TWhGCV. With an<br />

electrolyser fleet of approx.<br />

500 GW, intra-European H 2<br />

generation can cover 55 % of<br />

domestic demand.“<br />

Huangluolun Zhou, Electricity market<br />

expert at Energy Brainpool<br />

GOHYDROGEN: A HYDROGEN-ENERGY WORLD<br />

The "GoHydrogen" describes a scenario in which<br />

fossil natural gas is replaced by hydrogen. Hydrogen's<br />

potential is fully exploited in the main energy<br />

sectors, making it one of the main energy sources.<br />

Fuel cell trucks, climate-neutral steel from the direct<br />

reduction process, feedstock use in the chemical<br />

industry and hydrogen-based heating systems are<br />

applications in which hydrogen technologies will<br />

play a key role. This results in a hydrogen demand of<br />

more than 2,200 TWhGCV in 2050, 55 % of which can<br />

be met by domestic production. Electrification rates<br />

are also assumed for passenger cars, industrial process<br />

heat and heat supply in modern or refurbished<br />

buildings, so that the total electricity demand will be<br />

by 2050 around 5,700 TWh. This is almost a doubling<br />

of today's electricity consumption. The electricity<br />

demand will be met by a strong expansion of renewable<br />

generation such as onshore and offshore wind<br />

and solar, but also by expanding hydrogen-enabled<br />

gas turbines. In terms of hydrogen imports, MENA,<br />

Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia and the Americas offer<br />

great export potential.<br />

ALL ELECTRIC: STRONG ELECTRIFICATION<br />

WITH GREEN ELECTRICITY<br />

In the scenario “All Electric”, hydrogen as an energy<br />

carrier plays only a minor role. The use of hydrogen<br />

is limited to feedstock use in the production of steel,<br />

high-value chemicals and ammonia in the industrial<br />

sector. Energy consumption in the industrial sector<br />

is largely electrified with the use of large-scale heat<br />

pumps. In road transport, electric vehicles with battery<br />

storage will dominate both passenger and freight<br />

transport. The demand for space and water heating<br />

in the buildings sector will mainly be met by various<br />

types of electric heat applications (primarily air- and<br />

water-source heat pumps). Due to the higher efficiency,<br />

electricity demand is expected to be comparable<br />

to the “GoHydrogen” scenario. Hydrogen demand is<br />

reduced to the 30-50% level of “GoHydrogen”, leading<br />

to a significant reduction in hydrogen imports. Similar<br />

to the "GoHydrogen" scenario, renewable power<br />

plants are mainly used to meet the strongly increased<br />

electricity demand. Hydrogen-fuelled gas turbines<br />

will provide the necessary flexibility in the electricity<br />

supply system due to their high power gradients.<br />

GO NUCLEAR: RENAISSANCE OF<br />

THE NUCLEAR POWER<br />

focus of the transition to a carbon neutral energy<br />

system is on electrification rather than on green fuels.<br />

To meet the high demand for electricity, less renewable<br />

generation is integrated than in the “All Electric”<br />

scenario. Conventional power plants are expected to<br />

account for a significant share of the electricity mix.<br />

The conventional generation fleet consists mainly<br />

of nuclear power plants, but also of fossil fuel power<br />

plants whose electricity production can be made emission-neutral<br />

through Carbon Capture Utilisation and<br />

Storage (CCUS) technology. The underlying assumption<br />

for this scenario is therefore that nuclear power<br />

will experience a renaissance, and that CCUS technology<br />

will achieve market penetration.<br />

SUMMARY: STRIKING THE GOLDEN MEAN<br />

Which of the three scenarios is the right or most<br />

likely way forward? To answer this question, the<br />

three scenarios were evaluated. In terms of energy<br />

source independence, the "Go Nuclear" scenario<br />

stands out, as the energy system is not heavily dependent<br />

on green fuels, and the emission-neutral<br />

conventional power plant units provide the necessary<br />

base load and flexibility. However, the mandatory<br />

disposal of radioactive waste is a clear disadvantage.<br />

"All Electric” is less dependent on green fuels than<br />

“GoHydrogen”, but requires more back-up for the<br />

large share of intermittent renewable generation,<br />

which needs to be provided by intercontinental<br />

transmission capacity outside Europe. In terms of<br />

electricity price levels on the wholesale market, the<br />

“All Electric” scenario has the highest price level, as<br />

the large number of electric heat pumps for the provision<br />

of useful heat in the building sector is subject<br />

to seasonal fluctuations in consumption and can lead<br />

to very high prices in winter.<br />

All three scenarios tend to be strongly in favour<br />

of a particular technology for achieving climate<br />

neutrality, and each shows clear advantages and<br />

disadvantages. A golden mean of these decarbonisation<br />

scenarios is appropriate to meet the likely<br />

development path of energy supply. Furthermore, in<br />

order to implement the EU Green Deal in a targeted<br />

and timely manner, there will be country-specific<br />

differences that will require energy policy coordination<br />

within the EU.<br />

How smart energy solutions can<br />

drive the green transition and<br />

empower consumers<br />

Faced with an unprecedented energy price and supply crisis, Europe must rise to the<br />

occasion. This means securing affordable energy for consumers and delivering smart<br />

energy savings. There has never been a greater urgency to accelerate and complete the<br />

large-scale roll-out of smart meters across Europe and in Germany, a key enabler for the<br />

twin green and digital energy transition.<br />

The EU is reforming the electricity market design in<br />

20<strong>23</strong>, aimed at making consumer bills less dependent<br />

on volatile fossil fuel prices, better protecting<br />

consumers longer-term and enhancing demand-side<br />

flexibility. In addition, deploying smart energy<br />

solutions, and better using energy data is a no-regret<br />

solution, which can have an immediate positive<br />

impact on savings and consumer bills.<br />

The role of smart energy solutions for energy security<br />

and affordability needs to be fully recognised. Accelerating<br />

the roll-out of smart meters; implementing<br />

existing legislation (notably on real time data access and<br />

demand-side flexibility) and creating standards for data<br />

exchange and a new European energy data space for better<br />

data access and sharing are all part of the solution.<br />

Smart metering provides benefits for the whole energy<br />

system and is fundamental for the development<br />

of smart grids. Most importantly, smart metering<br />

provides savings through empowering consumers, and<br />

strongly contributes to a more efficient use of energy.<br />

Smart meters also generate huge amounts of granular<br />

data, which enables value creation and supports the<br />

digital transformation of utilities’ operations to create<br />

new business models and solutions for innovative<br />

market players.<br />

The deployment of smart meters has been mandated<br />

by EU legislation since 2009 but progress has been<br />

slow in many Member States. It was expected that<br />

80% of consumers would benefit from having an electricity<br />

smart meter installed in 2020 but this target has<br />

been missed by a long shot.<br />

The roll-out of smart meters has been completed at<br />

over 90% in 10 countries in Europe, including Finland,<br />

Italy, or Spain, and is advancing in many others, but<br />

currently only an average of 54% of household consumers<br />

are equipped with intelligent/smart meters in<br />

Europe. Germany – Europe’s most populous country and<br />

largest economy – has been lagging for over a decade<br />

in the roll-out of smart meters to the detriment of enabling<br />

a smarter system and empowering consumers.


16 | Electricity Electricity | 17<br />

different use cases to allow demand-side flexibility is<br />

key for achieving all the benefits the technology can<br />

bring. It is crucial to make metering data interoperable<br />

and ensure access to it in a non-discriminatory and<br />

secure manner for all authorised energy market participants<br />

including TSOs and DSOs, suppliers, energy<br />

services providers, and other market players.<br />

Therefore, to summarise, ESMIG recommends focusing<br />

on three actions in coordination. European and national<br />

policymakers, regulators and energy industry and<br />

market players all have a role to play:<br />

1. Accelerating and completing the roll-out of smart<br />

meters across Europe: while some Member States<br />

have completed their roll-out, others are lagging to<br />

the detriment of consumers and energy efficiency.<br />

Tomás Llobet<br />

Managing Director of ESMIG<br />

Germany’s new binding roadmap, with clear targets<br />

for smart electricity meters in households and businesses,<br />

including a more agile approach regarding the<br />

installation of smart meters, is therefore crucial for<br />

completing the smart meter rollouts in Europe and<br />

bringing all the advantages of smart energy solutions<br />

to German energy consumers. This will not only help<br />

consumer to better manage their energy consumption<br />

with dynamic tariffs, which are to be introduced, but<br />

accelerate the clean energy transition through better<br />

integration of renewables into the grid, smart bidirectional<br />

vehicle charging, the development of smart<br />

homes, controlling appliances flexibly while relying<br />

on smart metering and metering data.<br />

Moreover, the acceptance for smart meters in Germany<br />

seems high: as the results of a recent Bitkom poll 1<br />

showed, 88% of German energy consumers would<br />

like to know ‘at a glance’ how much energy they are<br />

currently consuming and where they can still make savings;<br />

and 78% of German energy consumers explicitly<br />

want to have a smart meter installed.<br />

But deploying smart meters is just the first step. Unleashing<br />

the power of energy data and enabling all the<br />

2. Removing barriers on energy data access and<br />

sharing, making real-time data available to<br />

consumers: as data is a core asset for the energy<br />

transition, it needs to be interoperable and made<br />

available in real-time as mandated by the Electricity<br />

Directive. This is far from reality in most countries<br />

in Europe today, four years after the adoption<br />

of the Clean Energy Package.<br />

3. Implementing and enabling demand-side flexibility,<br />

eliminating regulatory barriers: demand-side<br />

flexibility, a powerful solution to increase savings,<br />

is part of the EU’s electricity market design. Legislation<br />

was adopted in 2<strong>01</strong>9, but the provisions<br />

have not yet been adequately implemented in most<br />

Member States, except for Finland and France, and<br />

to a limited extent, Italy, Slovenia, and Spain.<br />

Finally, as Europe is becoming more self-reliant, and<br />

the limits of dependency are evident, it is crucial to<br />

support a strong European energy industry, serving<br />

and securing critical infrastructures and managing<br />

large amounts of sensitive data.<br />

Getting the grid ready by 2030<br />

Distribution grids are the backbone of the electricity system. Often invisible and<br />

sometimes ignored politically, they are however absolutely critical. Critical to deliver<br />

electricity to your home, critical also to accompany the energy transition: without<br />

them, there is no integration of renewables, no connection for solar panels or electric<br />

vehicles. Without them and their enhancement, the energy transition is in stall, simply.<br />

Now however is the time to recognise DSO and their grids and address the reality:<br />

distribution grids need massive investment to grow and to be modernised and to<br />

ensure drastically reduced connection times.<br />

With 30 to 35 billion dollars of annual revenue<br />

per year 1 and about 500 000 quality jobs, distribution<br />

system operators, or DSOs, are of capital<br />

importance in the European electricity landscape.<br />

They are the companies responsible for keeping<br />

the lights on, by distributing and managing<br />

energy from the generation sources to the final<br />

consumers. In other words, distribution grids are<br />

the backbone of the power network and thus of<br />

the energy transition. They ensure a reliable and<br />

continuous flow of electricity, all whilst integrating<br />

the vast majority of renewable energy sources. This<br />

makes DSOs not only vital in the energy demand<br />

process of industries and households alike, but<br />

also key drivers on the road to net-zero. Therefore,<br />

making the needs of DSOs heard and actively incorporating<br />

them in the policy-making process at all<br />

levels is paramount.<br />

This is one of Eurelectric’s core missions. We are the<br />

European trade association representing the entire<br />

electricity industry, from electricity generation and<br />

markets to distribution networks and customers, with<br />

a strong focus on DSOs. We federate and speak for<br />

more than 3 500 European utilities in 31 countries,<br />

and our mission is to lead Europe’s energy transition<br />

via clean electrification. We commit to providing<br />

effective representation for the power industry and<br />

communicating the benefits of clean electrification to<br />

the public, as well as ensuring that electricity-based<br />

solutions are supported with sufficient funding across<br />

Europe. Our structure of expertise includes committees<br />

covering all major sectors of the power industry<br />

and working groups on specific topics affiliated to<br />

each committee.<br />

Challenges related to the distribution grid and DSOs<br />

are covered by the Distribution and Market Facilitation<br />

Committee, whose focus now is on the conditions<br />

that will enable the integration of new assets<br />

and renewables into the grid, as required by the “Fit<br />

for 55 Package”, setting a 55% emission reduction<br />

target by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. As energy<br />

production and consumption are responsible for 75%<br />

of emissions in the EU, an accelerated transition to a<br />

greener energy system must be achieved. According<br />

to the amended Renewable Energy Directive, 40% of<br />

energy should be produced from renewable sources<br />

by 2030, and at least 70% of all renewable capacity<br />

will be connected at distribution level. At the same<br />

time, policy makers are raising the bar to decarbonise<br />

the transport and heating sectors and we foresee an<br />

additional 26 million EV charging infrastructures and<br />

33 million heat pumps to be rolled out and effectively<br />

connected in the distribution grid. Power distribution<br />

grids are playing a critical role to integrate them<br />

in a timely manner and must benefit from sufficient<br />

funding and an appropriate investment regulatory<br />

framework to achieve the aforementioned targets.<br />

According to Eurelectric’s Connecting The Dots study,<br />

the investments needed in DSOs between 2020 and<br />

2030 reach about 400 billion dollars, i.e. 50 to 70%<br />

higher than today (c.f., Fig. 2).<br />

How to make the grid fit for 2030’s<br />

decarbonisation objectives<br />

These ambitious yet much-needed targets pose certain<br />

challenges for the distribution grid.<br />

First of all, grid investments must be increased to be<br />

able to cover all main areas where support is needed.<br />

In a simplistic approach, “for each euro invested in<br />

renewables, we must invest one euro in our infrastructure<br />

to integrate them into the system”. To match<br />

the massive electrification planned for the next 5 to 10<br />

years, Eurelectric foresees an investment challenge of<br />

about 180 billion euros by 2030 for the electrification<br />

of buildings, e-mobility, and renewable generation, to<br />

which 100 billion euros must be added for modernisation.<br />

It is an ambitious but much needed investment. If<br />

we do not modernize the grid now, almost half of the<br />

low voltage lines in Europe will be over 40 years old<br />

by 2030, which is near the end of the technical lifetime<br />

for some of these assets. This would threaten the<br />

security of supply and massively delay the integration<br />

of renewables. In the context of increasing extreme<br />

weather events, building a resilient grid 2 is paramount.<br />

But modernization is not just about replacing lines and<br />

cables. It is also about digitalizing and automating<br />

the grid. In Connecting the Dots, we estimate that<br />

Europe will need between 30 and 35 billion euros to<br />

add smart capabilities to the grid, which is essential to<br />

unlock flexibility potentials from the assets connected<br />

to the grid (EVs, storage, demand response).<br />

The second major challenge is time. Connection to<br />

the grid can be associated with significant delays at<br />

times. As an example, in some EU countries, char-<br />

ging point operators for electric vehicles can wait up<br />

to 36 months to get a connection. The main reason<br />

is the lack of capacity on the grid. Many European<br />

countries are facing an increasing number of structural<br />

congestions. In the Netherlands, the situation<br />

is extreme with almost half of the country facing<br />

structural congestions without the possibility to<br />

connect new assets. These delays are exacerbated by<br />

a lack of structured cooperation between DSOs, public<br />

authorities and other relevant parties, a lack of standardisation<br />

and digitalisation in processes notably for<br />

the connection procedure, and administrative bottlenecks<br />

in permitting. As a solution, in addition to the<br />

creation of digital platforms and cooperative instances,<br />

improved network planning and management,<br />

focused on long-term forecasts, could help reduce<br />

delays associated with grid connection.<br />

Given that challenges faced by DSOs regarding the<br />

grid entail tangible consequences on the security and<br />

reliability of the power supply for customers across<br />

Europe, and since identified issues are most often<br />

cross-industrial as well as cross-border, discussions on<br />

the future of the distribution grid must involve a wide<br />

and transnational panel of all relevant agents of the<br />

power sector. Subsequently, Eurelectric often works<br />

in close collaboration with representatives of other<br />

industries, such as the e-mobility or the solar industry<br />

(e.g. in an ongoing joint project with SolarPower Europe),<br />

to share main concerns, praise best practices,<br />

and brainstorm solutions regarding fast-tracking and<br />

investment incentives. All this input is then translated<br />

into concrete sets of recommendations towards<br />

European policy makers.<br />

To put it in a nutshell, the current power distribution<br />

grid must undergo substantial modifications – and<br />

fast. Transformations such as modernisation and<br />

digitalisation will have to be supported by increased<br />

investments, and since the latter rely heavily on enabling<br />

regulatory frameworks, current regulation must<br />

be scrutinized and reviewed to incentivize investment<br />

in the grid and stimulate the development of grid<br />

flexibility. These are also the topics to be discussed on<br />

a joint panel by Eurelectric and relevant stakeholders<br />

of the Transition on the occasion of E-<strong>world</strong> 20<strong>23</strong>.<br />

Yes, the grid will be fit by 2030 - if the investment<br />

happens now.<br />

Why long-distance connectors<br />

are an integral part<br />

of the energy transition<br />

A pioneering project to supply millions of British homes with renewable energy generated<br />

3,800km away in Morocco will be pivotal to the UK achieving net zero by 2050. But<br />

the benefits of such international collaborations go wider, accelerating a global clean<br />

energy transition that has affordability, security and green jobs at its heart.<br />

As the triple energy crisis of climate, security<br />

and cost continues, governments and businesses<br />

are focussed on how to reduce reliance<br />

on foreign and carbon-intensive gas imports and<br />

achieve the clean energy transition in an affordable<br />

way for consumers.<br />

Long distance connectors transporting green electricity<br />

– like the <strong>world</strong>’s longest subsea link proposed<br />

between Morocco and the UK – are increasingly seen<br />

as part of an integrated solution, as the costs of<br />

wind and solar generation continue to fall, and the<br />

risks of geopolitical energy shocks continue to rise.<br />

“Within the next 15 years we will start having long<br />

distance cables criss-crossing the oceans in the same<br />

way that we have data cables today,” says Simon<br />

Morrish, CEO of Xlinks, the company behind the<br />

Morocco-UK Power Project.<br />

“Capturing renewable energy where it is cheap and abundant<br />

and moving it to where demand is greatest is<br />

going to be a key solution to our global energy crisis,<br />

helping us decarbonise and diversify quickly, cheaply<br />

and securely,” he explains.<br />

And the economics now stack up, according to<br />

Morrish, “Our primary goal is to help the <strong>world</strong> move<br />

away from fossil fuels, while also enhancing UK and<br />

global energy security. The economics of the project<br />

also look compelling – we are able to do this cheaply,<br />

and that’s good news for consumers and for an affordable<br />

energy transition.”<br />

Reliable power matched to demand<br />

Moving energy between different systems, geographies<br />

and time zones helps to solve the biggest problem of<br />

renewable energy generation – intermittency. Wind<br />

and solar markets are booming, and costs have come<br />

down – by over 90% in the last decade in the case of PV,<br />

making it cheaper in many parts of the <strong>world</strong> than fossil<br />

fuels. However, output can be hugely variable. There<br />

is often lower wind generation at times of high energy<br />

demand resulting in price spikes, even with nuclear balancing<br />

the system, and supply does not always match<br />

demand in terms of location and availability.<br />

This is where long-distance connectors come into<br />

the mix. The Xlinks Morocco-UK Power Project, for<br />

example, will provide an average of over 20 hours of<br />

reliable, renewable energy per day, with generation<br />

very closely matching demand.<br />

Located in the Guelmim Oued Noun region in Morocco,<br />

the project comprises 10.5GW of solar and wind generation,<br />

alongside a 20GWh/5GW battery storage facility.<br />

Project Director Richard Hardy says the project is<br />

progressing well, making use of the abundant natural<br />

resource. "The solar panels, tracking east to west, will<br />

generate three times the power they would in the UK<br />

and five times more between January to March, making<br />

the supply perfect for meeting the winter heating<br />

needs as the UK ramps up the installation of electric<br />

heat pumps, and keeping bills low.”<br />

Daily convection currents rise reliably every evening<br />

and drop in the morning when the sun starts to come<br />

up. “So, by combining this with solar and battery<br />

storage for further reliability and flexibility, what we<br />

are about to provide through the cables is firm and<br />

flexible power to 7 million homes, which is incredibly<br />

valuable to the UK,” says Hardy.<br />

Minimising risks in long distance connectors<br />

While Xlinks will be the <strong>world</strong>’s longest subsea electricity<br />

connection, it is by no means the first. High<br />

Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is a tried and tested<br />

technology that allows the efficient and safe transfer<br />

of electricity over long distances and is already used<br />

in subsea interconnectors around the <strong>world</strong>, like the<br />

720km UK-Norway North Sea Link. For the Morocco-<br />

UK project, twin 1.8GW cable systems will follow a<br />

shallow water route from the converter station in<br />

Morocco across the Gibraltar Strait and along the coastlines<br />

of Spain, Portugal and France, before crossing<br />

international waters to land in North Devon and plug<br />

into the Great Britain grid.<br />

Richard Hardy says the route is optimised for minimum<br />

length at a maximum depth and for the geology and<br />

environment. “Cables will be buried under the seabed<br />

at a water depth of 100-250m, sometimes reaching<br />

700m to mitigate the risk of disturbance and potential<br />

damage from fishing vessels and other sea users.”<br />

The project also has lower geopolitical risk compared<br />

to gas import and export. “Morroco is an ideal partner<br />

to host the generation portion of the Xlinks project<br />

and has one of the longest trading histories with the<br />

UK. Its existing regulatory and political structure<br />

is well suited to large-scale renewable generation<br />

projects and for many years Morocco has held strategic<br />

ambitions to become an energy exporter and an<br />

international hub for price-competitive and carbon<br />

free energy.” Morocco aims to generate over half of<br />

its power from renewables by the end of the decade<br />

and has already installed over $6 billion of projects.<br />

“Surveys are under way and the project is moving<br />

forward at pace,” says Hardy.<br />

A new global supply chain enabling the clean energy<br />

transition<br />

The domestic benefits for countries developing the<br />

infrastructure for long distance connectors can be<br />

significant. Xlinks says the privately financed project<br />

will help the UK meet its climate targets to decarbonise<br />

the electricity grid by 2035 and achieve net zero<br />

by 2050. In doing so, it will deliver a green jobs and<br />

supply chain windfall in each partner country.<br />

In Morocco, 10,000 jobs will be created – 2,000 of<br />

which will be permanent – through production of locally<br />

manufactured components, as well as construction<br />

and operation of the generation plant. In the<br />

UK, alongside the converter station construction, the<br />

project will launch a high-growth HVDC cable industry<br />

and supply chain creating 1,350 new and high-value<br />

UK manufacturing jobs.<br />

“A new long distance power connector market is being<br />

catalysed and it’s essential for the energy transition,”<br />

says Simon Morrish. “The challenges we are facing<br />

have to be addressed with new partnerships on an<br />

international level, and at scale. We must roll them<br />

out without delay if we are to maximise the economic,<br />

social and climate benefits.”<br />

When EC President Ursula von der Leyen met US<br />

President Biden in March 2022 they committed to<br />

delivering 50bcm of gas per annum through to 2030<br />

from the US to the European Union (EU). It was not<br />

sure that such a figure of imports could be achieved.<br />

However, due to strong efforts by the industry<br />

and the national administrations the EU recieved<br />

a record 52bcm of US LNG in 2022. This marked a<br />

fundamental shift in the gas market.<br />

The gas market developments<br />

over the past year and a glance<br />

to the future<br />

Today in Europe we are living in extremely challenging times when it comes to matters<br />

relating to our energy, this is a direct consequence of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in<br />

March 2022 and the build up to the war.<br />

Around this time energy prices increased dramatically<br />

and have rocked consumers, gas supplies<br />

have been limited and European industry has been<br />

forced to reduce output as a consequence. This is an<br />

unprecedented situation resulting in interventions in<br />

the gas market that would have been unthinkable just<br />

two years ago. The European gas market had been described<br />

as one of the best functioing energy markets<br />

as recently as 2021 by the European Union Agency<br />

for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER). Yet<br />

the war in Ukraine upended all of this and turned the<br />

European energy system on its head.<br />

The initial response of the European Commission (EC)<br />

was to assert a future free of Russian energy imports,<br />

including a phase out of Russian gas by the end of the<br />

decade. This is an objective that we in Eurogas can support,<br />

as Russia proved itself to be an unreliable partner<br />

leaving many companies in the lurch by failing to supply<br />

gas contracted to them. The EC brought forward a plan<br />

called RePowerEU in May 2022 outlining the actions<br />

that should define the short term for the European gas<br />

market to compensate for the loss of over 100bcm of<br />

Russian gas supply. A big part of this has been to turn to<br />

LNG – primarily from the United States (US).<br />

The EU – No Longer the LNG<br />

Market of Last Resort<br />

The turn to LNG led to further unprecedented developments<br />

in the gas market.<br />

The EU has long been considered the LNG market of<br />

last resort. No more! It is clear that as piped gas from<br />

Russia dwindles there will be a fundamental remaking<br />

of the EU gas market, shifting to an LNG driven<br />

market. There will of course still be plenty of piped<br />

gas from our neighbours and allies in Norway. There<br />

will also be piped gas from Azerbaijan and Algeria, but<br />

LNG will pick up considerably requiring the current<br />

gas infrastructure to be remade from an East to West<br />

flow to a West to East flow.<br />

Countries such as Germany have to contend with a<br />

new reality. In March 2022 Germany could import precisely<br />

zero LNG, not one terminal stands on German<br />

soil. However, the government quickly put through<br />

the LNG Accelerator Act and by December 20<strong>23</strong> the<br />

German Government expects an LNG import capability<br />

of around 44,5bcm. This is a remarkable achievement,<br />

improving security of supply and reducing the risk of<br />

the loss of industrial output two crucial elements of<br />

overall economic security.<br />

The question of how many of the potentially 7<br />

Floating Storage and Regassification Units (FSRUs)<br />

that will be turned into actual LNG terminals is open<br />

for discussion. It will be in part a political decision,<br />

but also an economic one. An LNG regassifcation<br />

terminal can cost around 1,5billion Euro – not dissimilar<br />

to the cost of an FSRU. It is thus likely that at<br />

least some terminals will be built leveraging private<br />

finance as well as public. In any case the die is being<br />

cast, the German example is a microcosm of the EU<br />

one – we are turning to LNG to keep the gas market<br />

fluid and affordable.<br />

Across Europe FSRUs have been chartered and the<br />

increasing question has been how to keep capacities<br />

at these points and the interconnectors across Europe<br />

open to deliver a new directional flow of gas. Avoiding<br />

bottlenecks is crucial to keep the gas moving<br />

and to ensure that no country is cut off. For example,<br />

Author Dr. James Watson<br />

Secretary General at Eurogas<br />

Slovakia a land locked country had never needed to<br />

take posession of LNG cargoes until 2022, and ordered<br />

its first two ever in the face of the war in Ukraine.<br />

Accessing terminals in Poland and infrastructure to<br />

cross the border was a new feat. This small example<br />

deomnstrates the fact that the LNG revolution is<br />

impacting all parts of the EU.<br />

LNG at any price?<br />

Following the RePowerEU intervention the EC also<br />

moved forward with a plan to ensure that the gas stores<br />

of Europe would be full by December 2022. Setting<br />

mandatory filling levels and dates the gas market new<br />

that it had to follow these demands or risk sanction.<br />

This was a major instigator of the huge rise in prices<br />

seen in August 2022 – often considered a semi-off<br />

season gas purchasing month – where levels on the<br />

north west European TTF hub hit a record 350EUR/MWh.<br />

Many storage operators were searching for gas to hit<br />

the required levels in September 2022, while Russia<br />

also announced the closure of North Stream 1. This of<br />

course led to contagion with electricity prices rising<br />

above 600EUR/MWh.<br />

Policymakers across Europe vowed to their electorates<br />

that they would act, resulting in two of the more<br />

interesting and entirely novel legislative requirements<br />

for the gas market – the so called market correction

mechanism (MCM) and the launch of joint purchasing<br />

through the AggregateEU platform. Neither of these<br />

measure would have been considered possible under<br />

peacetime circumstances and indeed getting the MCM<br />

through the legislative processes required so many<br />

somersaults that even an acrobat would have been impressed,<br />

but nevertheless they are on the gas market<br />

carbon gases. In RePowerEU a target of 35bcm of biomethane<br />

by 2030 is set, alongside a target for 20MT of<br />

renewable hydrogen. These are being pushed into the<br />

legislation by the European Parliament and indeed in<br />

Eurogas we support them.<br />

However, many new benefits and subsidies will be<br />

given to these new gases in order to bring them on,<br />

these are necessarily distortive measures in the gas<br />

market to ensure that the sector also delivers on the<br />

promise of gaseous molecules that contribute to net<br />

zero. This means that the gas market will now also<br />

experience the same impacts that the electricity sector<br />

has experienced as solar and wind became more<br />

prevalent in the last decade. This could mean that<br />

the gas market as we know it will never be the same<br />

as it was prior to the war in Ukraine. We will see how<br />

the integration of these new technologies goes, but<br />

experience tells us that when new technologies rise<br />

disruption is never far behind. In this regard we must<br />

welcome the disruption and sieze the opportunity<br />

to mould a new gas market in the next 10 years with<br />

hydrogen, biomethane and natural gas all working<br />

together to fulfill crucial economic, social and environmental<br />

purposes.<br />

The joint purchasing mechanism aims to reduce the<br />

cost of LNG, by aggregating demand so that a larger<br />

volume can bring a lower price – or at least the<br />

theory goes. Suppliers by and large tend to prefer<br />

long term contracts to make price discounts, so it<br />

will be an interesting time in 20<strong>23</strong> to see how the<br />

joint purchasing delivers on the promise of lower gas<br />

prices. The MCM has been designed expertly, almost<br />

to the point that it may never actually be used as the<br />

number of caveats suggest that the designers knew<br />

that capping wholesale market prices in a global<br />

context could have catastrophic impacts on securing<br />

gas when you need it most. This tool may never see<br />

the light of day.<br />

Overall the response has been one driven by the circumstances<br />

of war – emergency measures, that are indeed<br />

suitable for emergencies – but not for peacetime<br />

market management. It will be a year of great scrutiny<br />

for the gas sector as we see if prices can be kept stable<br />

and lower than those experienced in 2022.<br />

The Future of the Market<br />

Finally it is worth noting that the emergency measures<br />

will have an impact on the functioning of the gas<br />

market as long as the war effects last. RePowerEU<br />

and the Gas and Hydrogen package, currently being<br />

finalised in Brussels, will also lead to new impacts on<br />

the gas market – the integration of renewable and low<br />

The future of the European<br />

gas market: How much state<br />

intervention?<br />

2022 was an extreme year for the European gas industry. The successive reduction of<br />

Gazprom volumes to northwest and central Europe after Russia started its Ukraine<br />

invasion caused enormous stress with skyrocketing prices and unprecedented volatility<br />

in the European gas markets.<br />

At the beginning of September Gazprom stopped<br />

– allegedly (as before when the volumes were reduced)<br />

for technical reasons – supplies via Nord Stream 1<br />

completely. The assaults on the Nord Stream pipelines<br />

in September were more a symbolic final blow to the<br />

European-Russian gas relation. What was added to the<br />

calamities of the European gas market was Gazprom<br />

Export’s behaviour in using storage facilities in western<br />

Europe where the company had booked capacity. Most<br />

prominent was the German storage facility Rehden that<br />

was 100 per cent used by Gazprom. At the beginning of<br />

the winter season 2021/22 the storage was more or less<br />

empty. As a consequence, necessary volumes to cope<br />

with the winter demand were in short supply.<br />

The market and politics reacted to the extraordinary<br />

situation. The very high prices caused large industrial<br />

users to reduce or stop gas offtake and reduce production.<br />

The resulting shortage of ammonia for example<br />

caused headlines in the news. The very high prices<br />

attracted all available LNG around the <strong>world</strong>, utilisation<br />

rates of European LNG-terminals were higher than<br />

ever. Due to constraint transmission capacity between<br />

European countries this resulted in locational spreads<br />

between “LNG rich countries” like Belgium, France, the<br />

UK or Spain and LNG poor countries like Germany or<br />

Austria never seen before. In Germany the government<br />

took the initiative to charter five LNGs with the help of<br />

Uniper, RWE Supply & Trading and Engie for a whopping<br />

8.4 billion Euro for the whole charter period of a<br />

maximum of 15 years. EU member states and the EU<br />

Commission intervened in the storage market. Austria<br />

introduced a strategic storage reserve. Germany mandated<br />

the market area manager THE to fill in particular<br />

– but not only –the Rehden storage left idle by Gazprom<br />

and supported these activities with a loan of 15 billion<br />

Euro granted by the state bank KfW. The EU prescribed<br />

for all member states a trajectory of filling levels over<br />

the storage year to grant a filling level of 90 per cent at<br />

the start of the next winter. But there had been more<br />

state interventions. In Germany the government had<br />

to nationalise Uniper and Gazprom Germania with its<br />

affiliates Wingas (sales), astora (operator of the storage<br />

facilities Rehden, Jemgum and a part of Haidach)<br />

and Gascade (TSO). The reasons had been a bit different<br />

and - in particular - the Gazprom Germania story is<br />

complicated. But finally, the strong exposure to Russian<br />

gas and the severe financial consequences of the stop<br />

of these supplies made the initiative necessary to avoid<br />

going bust of players that are systemically relevant for<br />

the market. At the end of the year, the EU Commission<br />

was finally able to gain support from all member states<br />

for two remarkable regulations: Regulation 2022/2578<br />

allows the introduction of a so-called market correction<br />

mechanism if the wholesale price exceeds 180 Euro/<br />

MWh. And regulation 2022/2576 prescribes amongst<br />

others the establishment of a joint procurement platform<br />

for gas and the development of LNG price benchmarks<br />

by the European regulator agency ACER. The<br />

publication of the LNG prices already started; the joint<br />

procurement platform is developed by the capacity<br />

platform operator Prisma as a service provider and will<br />

go live in April this year.<br />

Where will the market goes from here and will state<br />

intervention last? The first question is what will be the<br />

future role of gas in Europe? A bit counterintuitively<br />

prices came down substantially after the Nord Stream<br />

explosions but even the levels of long-term prices like<br />

Cal 26 are still strongly above pre-crisis levels. Whether<br />

a level of 20,00 Euro/MWh, the pre-crisis benchmark<br />

will be ever be met again is questionable. Price<br />

sensitive industries may simply switch to locations<br />

with lower fuel cost. The announcement of the German<br />

chemical major BASF to stop ammonia production in<br />

Germany is a good example. And governments will try<br />

to push gas as a fossil fuel out of the market. This is<br />

particular true for the heating market. In Germany the<br />

German federal ministries of Economic Affairs and Climate<br />

Protection and of Housing. Urban Development<br />

and Building released the draft of a law that shall<br />

prescribe in the hearting sector a share of 65 per cent<br />

renewable energies for new heating systems. Heat<br />

pumps and district heating based on renewable energies<br />

shall replace gas boilers – currently the dominant<br />

heating systems in Germany as quick as possible. The<br />

future of gas determines to what extent Russian gas<br />

shall be replaced by new long-term contracts. Such<br />

contracts are possible mainly with LNG providers in<br />

the USA and Qatar. But with the uncertain future for<br />

natural gas it’s difficult for private companies to ink<br />

contract with duration of 15 years and more. This is an<br />

area where governments may be helpful. In Germany<br />

the nationalised companies Uniper and Securing<br />

Energy for Europe (SEFE, the new name of Gazprom<br />

Heiko Lohmann<br />

Journalist<br />

Germania) may have a bigger appetite for this kind<br />

of long-term contracts than other companies. The<br />

European joint procurement platform will not really<br />

help to ink these contracts, because it will focus on<br />

procurement for the next twelve months. An interesting<br />

question that is looming over the market is the<br />

future of Russian gas. Many market participants argue<br />

that if there are (and hopefully this will take place)<br />

peace talks between Russia and Ukraine the question<br />

of energy relations between Europe and Russia will<br />

come on the agenda. To allow resuming gas supplies<br />

to Europe will be one topic. Than it will be a task for<br />

the EU Commission and the governments to decide<br />

how many volumes are acceptable and how that shall<br />

be organised in a reliable manner. This will of curse<br />

have an impact on the gas prices.<br />

With a mixture of market adjustments and state<br />

intervention the gas market adapted quite well to the<br />

events of 2022 although one should never forget the<br />

related cost. Politics should not underestimate the<br />

efficiency of market dynamics. The most challenging<br />

task will be to find the proper future balance between<br />

security of supply and decarbonisation efforts in the<br />

gas market.<br />

From a wee dram to a<br />

Green Hydrogen Economy,<br />

Scotland powers ahead.<br />

Anyone fortunate enough to have visited Scotland and experienced its stunning<br />

landscape will know that the climate has shaped the land and developed a society<br />

that lives in harmony with nature, utilising the strong winds and heavy rains to its<br />

unique economic advantage.<br />

First there was whisky, with the fertile soils and<br />

plentiful rain enabling robust cereal growth, and<br />

pure river water that helped make our national drink.<br />

Scottish engineering expertise then created the distilleries<br />

and with innovation and determination, took<br />

the resulting product from the northern tip of Europe<br />

to all corners of the globe in what remains an incredibly<br />

important export industry for the country.<br />

As time moves on, those same characteristics are helping<br />

shape Scotland’s new great export opportunity<br />

– Green Hydrogen.<br />

With a pioneering offshore wind industry and one<br />

of the <strong>world</strong>’s largest offshore leasing rounds,<br />

ScotWind, which will deliver up to 27GW worth of<br />

new offshore wind power, those strong winds that<br />

blow in from the North Sea are not just shaping the<br />

landforms but are also generating renewable energy.<br />

Scotland’s 12,000 kilometres of coastline and almost<br />

800 islands make it perfectly positioned to take<br />

advantage of the natural energy contained in the big<br />

blusters that blow its way.<br />

Other than natural resources, what factors influence<br />

Scotland’s potential to be one of the greenest energy<br />

economies in the <strong>world</strong>? What will we do with all this<br />

energy? And where does Hydrogen fit into the story?<br />

Scotland was the first nation to announce a climate<br />

emergency. The Scottish Government has also set some<br />

of the highest climate change targets in the <strong>world</strong> and<br />

introduced supportive net zero policies, including:<br />

• Net zero by 2045<br />

• 75% reduction of GHG emissions by 2030<br />

• Low carbon heating from 2024<br />

• Decarbonisation of cars by 2032; trains by 2035;<br />

flights by 2040<br />

• Green and fair recovery, with opportunity for a<br />

more equal society and economy<br />

• Hydrogen-specific aims are:<br />

• 5GW of Green Hydrogen production by 2030 and<br />

25GW by 2045<br />

• Up to 94 TWh green hydrogen for export<br />

• £100 million of funding to develop the hydrogen<br />

economy with industry and international partners<br />

• Continue accelerating demand and move small<br />

pilots to large commercial projects<br />

Scotland’s industrial heritage is clear for all to see. In<br />

the early 1970s when oil was discovered in the North<br />

Sea, some industry experts said it would never be exploited<br />

with such deep waters and tough weather conditions.<br />

However, with true Scottish grit, innovation and engineering<br />

excellence, the North Sea oil and gas industry<br />

evolved and successfully developed a Scottish workforce<br />

with now more than 40 years’ experience. As Scotland<br />

now carefully undertakes a just transition away<br />

from fossil fuels and towards a zero-carbon economy,<br />

those skills and experiences are being fully utilised to<br />

deliver a successful renewable energy industry.<br />

Scotland is already home to the <strong>world</strong>’s first floating<br />

offshore wind farm (Hywind), one of Europe’s first Hydrogen<br />

valleys in Orkney and the <strong>world</strong>’s first fleet of<br />

fuel cell double decker buses in Aberdeen. The country<br />

is a net exporter of electricity, with the renewable<br />

generation in 2021 enough to power all households<br />

in Scotland for three years. With ScotWind coming<br />

on stream towards 2030, much of this new renewable<br />

energy will likely be exported in the form of Green Hydrogen.<br />

Flotta in Orkney is an example of a largescale<br />

Green Hydrogen project that will use the new offshore<br />

wind resources and deploy German technology and<br />

Scottish skill in a joint development that enhances<br />

Scottish-German energy linkages.<br />

Another international example is the Scot2Ger project,<br />

which demonstrates the viability of generating<br />

Green Hydrogen through ScottishPower’s onshore<br />

wind resources and exporting to Germany to help<br />

power German industries. While this study looks initially<br />

at transport via shipping, a new project linking<br />

the Scottish Net Zero Technology Centre with Germany<br />

is taking further steps and establishing the basis for a<br />

hydrogen pipeline between the two countries.<br />

This indicates that Scotland is a country that relishes<br />

the creation of international partnerships that increase<br />

innovation and strengthen global trade links, particularly<br />

in sectors where Scotland’s greatest export strengths<br />

currently lie, such as Energy and Low Carbon Transition.<br />

Adrian Gillespie, Chief Executive of Scottish Enterprise,<br />

Scotland’s national economic development<br />

agency, said: “Scotland is a leader of the energy<br />

and low carbon transition, with a growing hydrogen<br />

supply chain, innovative firms and an international<br />

outlook.<br />

“We welcome international businesses who value<br />

a fair, sustainable and low-carbon future and I<br />

would encourage companies to get in touch with<br />

Scottish Enterprise to hear more about what we<br />

have to offer.”<br />

Of course, the question will be whether Green Hydrogen<br />

can enhance the Scotch Whisky industry.<br />

It’s too early to say what impact hydrogen might have<br />

on the taste of whisky – we’ll have to wait another 12<br />

years while the whisky matures in its barrels before we<br />

Steve Taylor, Trade Specialist Energy and Low Carbon<br />

Transition - Berlin, Scottish Development International<br />

know that. However, the reduction in CO 2<br />

emissions<br />

across the industry is already impressive.<br />

Since adopting an environmental strategy in 2009, industry-wide<br />

emissions in Scotland have fallen by 53%.<br />

New distilleries such as Arbikie are currently installing<br />

hydrogen boilers in their plans to be the <strong>world</strong>’s first<br />

carbon positive distillery, while the Nc’Nean distillery is<br />

already the Europe’s first certified net zero distillery.<br />

Older distilleries such as Bruichladdich and Highland<br />

Park are in the process of converting their heating<br />

processes to Hydrogen. Glenrothes on Speyside was<br />

already the <strong>world</strong>’s first to use its draff –biodegradable<br />

waste – to generate heat through biogas, which<br />

has now extended to heat 17 Speyside distilleries and<br />

9,000 nearby homes.<br />

So, a people shaped by a harsh climate, who understand<br />

those weather systems and how they influence<br />

the land, that work with nature to produce the <strong>world</strong>’s<br />

finest national drink are now working with the same<br />

nature to decarbonise our energy systems, reduce<br />

global climate concerns and export Green Hydrogen<br />

to the industrial powerhouses of Central Europe that<br />

need international help in their aims to decarbonise.<br />

Let’s raise a glass and say Slàinte Mhath to the Scottish<br />

Green Hydrogen industry!<br />

Wasserstoff-Datenbank als<br />

zentraler Beschleuniger<br />

Viele Gasnetzbetreiber beschäftigen sich derzeit intensiv mit den Herausforderungen<br />

der Umstellung ihrer Infrastruktur von Erdgas auf Wasserstoff. Der Deutsche Verein des<br />

Gas- und Wasserfachs (DVGW) unterstützt diese dabei auf vielfältige Weise. Seit Anfang<br />

des Jahres auch mit der Datenbank „VerifHy“.<br />

Dabei handelt es sich um eine Art Kompendium, mit<br />

dem jeder Netzbetreiber die Wasserstofftauglichkeit<br />

seiner Gasnetze bewerten und die Planung der Transformation<br />

durchführen kann. „Wir haben die Wasserstoffdatenbank<br />

erstellt, damit nicht jeder einzelne<br />

Netzbetreiber das Wasserstoff-Know-how mühselig<br />

und lückenhaft zusammensuchen muss, sondern per<br />

Knopfdruck dieses Wissen abrufen und sogar auf sein<br />

spezifisches Netz anwenden kann“, sagt Prof. Dr. Gerald<br />

Linke. Laut dem Vorstandsvorsitzenden des DVGW ist<br />

der Anspruch kein geringerer, als die technologisch<br />

führende, umfangsreichste und zuverlässigste Netzumstelldatenbank<br />

anzubieten – und zwar europaweit und<br />

in der Landessprache unserer Kunden. Denn Linke stellt<br />

hier klar: „Die Transformation der Erdgasnetz zu einer<br />

Wasserstoffinfrastruktur ist kein nationaler Alleingang.“<br />

In Richtung des deutschsprachigen Teils Europas ist<br />

man hier schon vorangekommen. Die Vertreterinnen<br />

und Vertreter der österreichischen und der schweizerischen<br />

Organisationen ÖVGW und SVGW waren von Anfang<br />

an in die Entwicklung von VerifHy eingebunden.<br />

Ebenso eng ist die Kooperation mit hiesigen Netzbetreibern,<br />

etwa über die Zusammenarbeit mit Unternehmen<br />

der Initiative H2vorOrt, die einen großen Teil<br />

der deutschen Gasnetze abdecken.<br />

Beim DVGW verbindet man mit VerifHy die Überzeugung,<br />

dass die Transformation der Netze hin zu grünen<br />

Gasen funktioniert. Es handele sich dabei auch um „das<br />

entscheidende Werkzeug beim Bestreben, im Gasnetzgebietstransformationsplan<br />

(GTP) formulierten Ziele<br />

inhaltlich, qualitativ und zeitlich umzusetzen“, so Linke.<br />

Laufende Erweiterung des Datenbestands<br />

Die Datenbank enthält einen umfangreichen Bestand an<br />

Informationen, der sowohl Erkenntnisse aus Forschung<br />

und Wissenschaft als auch Angaben von Herstellern<br />

umfasst. Bis zum Jahresende 2022 wurde die Programmierung<br />

abgeschlossen und die sogenannte Basis-Befüllung<br />

eingepflegt. Dabei handelt es sich um Aussagen<br />

zu 250 Materialien, 75 Komponenten-Steckbriefen und<br />

105 Produkten aus den Kompendien der DBI Gas- und<br />

Umwelttechnik GmbH. Die DBI GUT mit Sitz in Leipzig<br />

ist ein Forschungsinstitut des DVGW. Es arbeitet und<br />

forscht mit über 80 Mitarbeitern zu aktuellen Themen<br />

auf dem breitgefächerten Gebiet der Gasversorgung.<br />

Nach Angaben des DVGW wird der Datenbestand<br />

laufend erweitert. Hersteller von Bauteilen im Gasnetz<br />

haben die Möglichkeit, ihre Produkte und deren<br />

Parameter zur Wasserstoffverträglichkeit einzupflegen.<br />

Außerdem werden neuste Forschungsergebnisse<br />

sukzessive in die Datenbank eingepflegt. Zusätzlich<br />

haben Netzbetreiber die Möglichkeit, Änderungsvorschläge<br />

einzureichen.<br />

Ein wichtiger Punkt ist hierbei die Prüfung der Daten<br />

über das sogenannte Quality Gate. Dort werden insbesondere<br />

die unterstützenden Dokumente der Hersteller<br />

zum Nachweis der H 2<br />

-Tauglichkeit auf Plausibilität und<br />

Vollständigkeit geprüft. Wenn die Angaben daraufhin<br />

in der Datenbank geändert werden müssen, erfolgt die<br />

Freigabe in der sogenannten Clearing-Stelle. Diese ist<br />

mit einer ganzen Reihe von ausgewiesenen Fachexperten<br />

besetzt. Das Freigabeorgan kommt immer dann ins<br />

Spiel, wenn strittige Änderungen von Daten innerhalb<br />

der Datenbank geklärt werden müssen. Der Bedarf ist<br />

unstrittig, da den Daten eine sehr hohe Bedeutung<br />

zukommt. Schließlich werden diese Bewertungen dazu<br />

verwendet, um Netze zukünftig für den Betrieb mit<br />

Wasserstoff zu qualifizieren, oder sie dienen als Wissensgrundlage<br />

für einen Sachverständigen, der dann wiederum<br />

diese Freigabe erteilt. Deshalb stellt der DVGW auch<br />

klar: „Es geht nichts in die Datenbank ohne Verifizierung,<br />

ein Plausibilitätscheck findet immer statt.“<br />

Zwei Optionen zur Nutzung der Datenbank<br />

Prinzipiell stehen den Anwendern zwei Optionen zur<br />

Nutzung der Datenbank zur Verfügung. Die eine ist die<br />

Verwendung als Nachschlagewerk in Stichworten. Hier<br />

kann man bestimmte Materialeigenschaften oder Informationen<br />

zu Produkten und Komponenten manuell<br />

suchen. Die Informationen lassen sich dann auch als<br />

PDF-Datei downloaden.<br />

Die zweite Option ist die Stapelverarbeitung über eine<br />

autorisierende CSV-Datei. Bei dieser Variante bedarf<br />

es einer eindeutigen Verbindung zwischen den Assets,<br />

die der Netzbetreiber bewerten möchte, und der<br />

Datenbank. Die Datei dient als Übersetzungswerkzeug<br />

zwischen den beim Netzbetreiber vorliegenden Daten<br />

und der Datenbank.<br />

„<br />

VerifHy ist das entscheidende<br />

Werkzeug beim Bestreben,<br />

die im Gasnetzgebietstransformationsplan<br />

formulierten<br />

Ziele inhaltlich, qualitativ<br />

und zeitlich umzusetzen.“<br />

Prof. Dr. Gerald Linke<br />

Vorstandsvorsitzender des DVGW<br />

Wichtig ist hier wiederum die Datenqualität. Denn<br />

je genauer die Daten des Netzbetreibers sind, desto<br />

genauer sind dann auch die Aussagen der Datenbank<br />

im Hinblick auf die Wasserstoffverträglichkeit.<br />

Schaufenster für Komponentenhersteller<br />

VerifHy hat zudem das Potenzial, für die Anbieter entsprechender<br />

Komponenten und Anlagen einen Mehrwert<br />

zu generieren. So geht man beim DVGW davon<br />

aus, dass die Datenbank als ein Art Schaufenster ihrer<br />

Fähigkeiten fungieren wird. Eine Auswirkung könnte<br />

etwa sein, dass Hersteller ihre Produkte in Prüflaboren<br />

testen lassen, um so qualifizierte Aussagen gegenüber<br />

Gasnetzbetreibern treffen zu können. Für Letztere<br />

The German Technical and Scientific<br />

Association for Gas and Water (DVGW) supports<br />

gas network operators in converting their<br />

infrastructure from natural gas to hydrogen with<br />

the "VerifHy" database, among other things.<br />

This allows network operators to easily retrieve<br />

hydrogen knowledge and even apply it to their<br />

specific networks. In total, the tool contains<br />

statements on 250 materials, 75 component<br />

profiles and 105 products from the compendium<br />

of DBI Gas- und Umwelttechnik GmbH, and the<br />

latest research results are also included. Network<br />

operators can also submit suggested changes<br />

accordingly, which are then approved by a<br />

clearinghouse. Overall, there are two options for<br />

use: users can use the tool as a reference tool or<br />

batch process it via an authoritative CCSV file.<br />

wiederum bietet die Plattform die Möglichkeit, nicht<br />

nur den aktuellen Bestand zu beurteilen, sondern<br />

auch, bei Neuanschaffungen die Bauteile mit Blick auf<br />

ihre Wasserstofffähigkeit zu scannen.<br />

Nicht zu unterschätzen, dürfte zudem der Kommunikationseffekt<br />

sein. Eine engere Kooperation sorgt<br />

bekanntlich für ein besseres Verständnis zwischen den<br />

Beteiligten – hier Netzbetreibern, Komponentenherstellern,<br />

Wissenschaft oder Politik. In diese Richtung<br />

geht auch die Einschätzung von DVGW-Chef Linke. Für<br />

den Markthochlauf von Wasserstoff sei das Zusammenspiel<br />

vieler wirtschaftlich handelnder Akteure vonnöten.<br />

Dabei nennt er vor allem drei Handlungsschwerpunkte.<br />

Neben der dringend benötigten Verfügbarkeit<br />

größerer Wasserstoffmengen müsse die Energie zu den<br />

Kunden über die Netze gebracht werden. Der dritte<br />

Punkt richtet sich an die Geräteindustrie: Diese müsse<br />

die Produktion der bereits heute viel gefragten H 2<br />

-ready-Endgeräte<br />

hochfahren.<br />

Als DVGW wirke man auf alle drei Aspekte ein, im<br />

Fokus stünden jedoch die Netze. Und hier ist sich der<br />

DVGW-Chef sicher: „Mit der VerifHy-Datenbank haben<br />

wir den zentralen Beschleuniger für die H 2<br />

-Netzumstellung<br />

aufgebaut.“<br />

„Die KWK wird ein zentraler<br />

Baustein der dekarbonisierten<br />

Strom- und Wärmeversorgung –<br />

wenn man sie lässt.“<br />

Der Ausstieg aus fossilen Brennstoffen ist das zentrale Thema der Dekade. Neben dem<br />

Aufbau weiterer Kapazitäten der Wind- und Solarstromproduktion geht es auch um die<br />

Umrüstung bestehender Kraftwerke auf erneuerbare Brennstoffe. Über die Potenziale<br />

von Kraft-Wärme-Kopplungsanlagen zur Dekarbonisierung sprachen wir mit Dr. Timm<br />

Kehler, Vorstand von Zukunft Gas.<br />

Stefanie Hamm:<br />

Zusammen mit zahlreichen Partnern hat Zukunft Gas<br />

eine Studie zur Dekarbonisierung der KWK in Auftrag<br />

gegeben. Was ist die Haupterkenntnis?<br />

Dr. Timm Kehler:<br />

Wir haben uns in der Studie die Frage gestellt,<br />

welchen Beitrag die Kraft-Wärme-Kopplung zur<br />

Erreichung einer klimaneutralen Energieversorgung<br />

leisten kann – und wie dies zu realisieren<br />

ist. Die zentrale Erkenntnis ist eindeutig: Die KWK<br />

leistet bereits viel, kann jedoch noch weitaus mehr<br />

– wenn man sie lässt. Aufgrund ihrer vielfältigen<br />

Anwendungsmöglichkeiten bietet sie enormes<br />

Potenzial für die Dekarbonisierung der Strom- und<br />

der Wärmeversorgung. Die Anlagen sind nicht an<br />

bestimmte Brennstoffe gebunden, sondern können<br />

zu 100 Prozent erneuerbar betrieben werden - etwa<br />

mit Wasserstoff. Und die KWK ist zu einer flexiblen<br />

Fahrweise fähig. Diese Netzdienlichkeit wird für die<br />

System- und Versorgungssicherheit immer wichtiger.<br />

Dazu muss sie jedoch an die Anforderungen einer<br />

klimaneutralen Energieversorgung angepasst werden<br />

und benötigt eine zuverlässige Regulierung.<br />

Stefanie Hamm:<br />

Welche systemischen oder regulatorischen Schritte<br />

müssen gegangen werden, um die Transformation<br />

umzusetzen?<br />

Dr. Timm Kehler:<br />

Auch in Zukunft wird eine verlässliche KWK benötigt<br />

werden. Dazu muss sie jedoch flexibilisiert werden:<br />

Das heißt, Strom- und Wärmeerzeugung von KWK<br />

müssen durch Wärmespeicher zeitlich entkoppelt<br />

werden. So kann der lokale Wärmebedarf gedeckt und<br />

gleichzeitig die variable Stromerzeugung aus Wind<br />

und Photovoltaik ergänzt werden. Zudem muss der<br />

Brennstoffmix sukzessive auf klimaneutrale Energieträger<br />

umgestellt werden. Das bedeutet neben dem<br />

Ausstieg aus der Kohleverfeuerung bis 2030 auch den<br />

zunehmenden Ersatz von Erdgas durch Biomethan und<br />

Wasserstoff. Dafür bedarf es neben der Sicherstellung<br />

von Wasserstoff-Readiness eines stabilen Rechtsrahmens<br />

als Grundlage, welcher marktgerechte Anreize<br />

für Investitionen in KWK schafft. Genehmigungsverfahren<br />

müssen zudem beschleunigt und Bürokratie<br />

weiter reduziert werden. Um eine netzdienliche<br />

Fahrweise der KWK, d.h. das Decken der Residuallast,<br />

zu ermöglichen, muss künftig die Leistungsvorhaltung<br />

"CHP will become a central building block of<br />

decarbonized electricity and heat supply - if<br />

you let it."<br />

In a study by trade association Zukunft Gas,<br />

combined heat and power plants are found<br />

to be not only a central pilar of the existing,<br />

but also of the future energy system. Thus,<br />

CHP can contribute heavily to decarbonizing<br />

the supply of buildings, offering steadily produced<br />

green electricity and power. However<br />

currently running on coal and natural gas,<br />

CHP plants can easily be switched to green<br />

fuels like biomethane or hydrogen. Managing<br />

director Dr. Kehler sees it as realistic<br />

that hydrogen will be available in sufficient<br />

quantities in the future. This would foster the<br />

integration of renewables – if electricity and<br />

heat generation from CHP are decoupled in<br />

time by heat storage systems.<br />

The study notes that to unleash this potential,<br />

H 2<br />

-readiness of the plants must be<br />

ensured technically, and political guidelines<br />

have to be set by the Federal government:<br />

He demands a stable legal framework to<br />

create market-driven investment incentives.<br />

To enable grid-serving operation of CHP, i.e.<br />

covering the reserve load, this capacity must<br />

be remunerated. Also, tender volumes for<br />

innovative CHP should be increased.<br />

vergütet werden. Zudem sollten die Ausschreibungsmengen<br />

für die innovative Kraft-Wärme-Kopplung<br />

(iKWK) erhöht werden.<br />

Stefanie Hamm:<br />

Welche Rolle spielt KWK im aktuellen Energiesystem<br />

und welche kann sie in einem dekarbonisierten System<br />

einnehmen?<br />

Dr. Timm Kehler:<br />

KWK-Anlagen stehen heute etwa für 22 Prozent der<br />

Netto-Stromerzeugung (110 TWh/a) und erzeugen<br />

17 Prozent der benötigten Wärme (225 TWh/a) in<br />

Deutschland. Doch die KWK ist nicht nur bestehende,<br />

sondern auch zukünftige Säule der Energieversorgung<br />

und insbesondere wichtig beim Ausbau der dargebotsabhängigen<br />

Erzeugungstechnologien (PV und<br />

Wind) und der künftig verstärkten Wärmeversorgung<br />

durch Wärmenetze. Ihre Anwendungsmöglichkeiten<br />

sind überaus vielfältig. Von der Objektversorgung,

Wird künftig ausreichend Wasserstoff und Biomethan<br />

verfügbar sein, um die KWK zu defossilisieren?<br />

Dr. Timm Kehler:<br />

Es gibt eine Vielzahl von potenziellen Quellen, die<br />

technisch in naher Zukunft auf große Produktionsmengen<br />

ausgeweitet werden können. Dadurch ist es<br />

realistisch, dass in der Zukunft klimafreundliche Gase<br />

in ausreichendem Maße verfügbar sein werden, um<br />

die KWK klimaneutral zu stellen. Das Ziel des Bundesministeriums<br />

für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz für die<br />

heimische Erzeugung von Wasserstoff liegt bei etwa<br />

28 TWh/a bis 2030. Das Importpotenzial von Wasserstoff<br />

wird dazu ab 2030 deutlich anziehen. Die langfristigen<br />

Produktionspotenziale (um das Jahr 2045)<br />

in Europa könnten laut Frontier Economics sogar über<br />

3.000 TWh/a betragen. Der gasförmige Energieträger,<br />

welcher 2045 einen Anteil von rund 55 Prozent am<br />

Energieträgermix der KWK-Stromerzeugung einnehmen<br />

wird, ist somit künftig ausreichend vorhanden.<br />

Net-zero transition unlocks<br />

opportunities in Australia’s<br />

growing energy markets<br />

The move towards net zero has transformed Australia’s power generation mix, creating<br />

new possibilities. To support this transition, ASX is expanding its range of derivatives<br />

to help companies cut their carbon footprint and increase their presence in Australia’s<br />

changing energy markets.<br />

Australia’s energy sector is going through a dramatic<br />

shift as the country strives to become a net-zero economy<br />

by 2050. With renewables now accounting for<br />

more than 30% of Australia’s electricity generation,<br />

organisations are making greater use of derivatives<br />

to manage energy risks, realise opportunities and<br />

accelerate decarbonisation efforts.<br />

To support this increasing demand, Australian Securities<br />

Exchange (ASX) is seeking to expand its electricity<br />

and gas ecosystem to include more gas futures and<br />

new carbon derivatives. This ecosystem provides companies<br />

with the building blocks for decarbonisation<br />

while offering liquidity, price transparency and risk<br />

management tools.<br />

ASX runs one of the <strong>world</strong>’s most liquid electricity<br />

futures markets, facilitating over A$127 billion<br />

traded in face value during 2022. This market has<br />

grown since 2<strong>01</strong>5 and now trades over 700% of the<br />

underlying power consumption in Australia’s National<br />

Electricity Market.<br />

These new products will add to Australia’s growing<br />

pool of solutions that promote carbon reduction while<br />

providing economic incentives to do so.<br />

According to John Connor, CEO of Carbon Market Institute<br />

(CMI), market-based mechanisms have a crucial<br />

part to play in scaling up climate action and ensuring<br />

an economically efficient shift to net-zero.<br />

CMI aims to accelerate the shift to net-zero by building<br />

capacity, promoting best practice and supporting policy<br />

aligned with UNFCCC Paris Agreement climate goals. In<br />

2022, ASX became a corporate member to support the<br />

Australian community in driving this transition.<br />

“A transition that’s economically viable helps ensure<br />

that Australian businesses remain competitive,” says<br />

Connor. “That’s why we support efforts by ASX to<br />

develop products that assist companies in meeting<br />

their emissions targets while encouraging investment<br />

in decarbonisation projects.”<br />

Now ASX seeks to expand its presence in the gas derivatives<br />

market with the upcoming listing of the Wallumbilla<br />

Gas futures contract (subject to regulatory<br />

approval). This addition will complement the existing<br />

Victorian Declared Wholesale Gas futures contract and<br />

provide more risk management tools for companies.<br />

Reducing emissions with carbon derivatives<br />

In early 2024, ASX will seek to list new futures contracts<br />

over Australian Carbon Credit Units, Large-scale<br />

Generation Certificates and New Zealand Emission<br />

Units (subject to regulatory approval). These contracts<br />

will facilitate the trading of carbon credits in<br />

Australia and New Zealand, improving market liquidity<br />

and increasing price discovery.<br />

STORAGE<br />

Renewable energies such as photovoltaics, wind energy and<br />

hydrogen are very volatile and do not provide a constant<br />

power supply. In order to guarantee the supply at any time,<br />

the storage of surplus energy from renewable energy sources<br />

in energy storage systems is necessary. Learn more about<br />

different concepts of energy storage.<br />

Energy storage systems &<br />

protection from unexpected<br />

power failures<br />

We have never been quite as aware of our dependence on a reliable power supply to<br />

preserve our prosperity. The fear of power failures and unreliable or unaffordable<br />

power supplies is continually rising and preoccupies private individuals as well as<br />

the economy.<br />

The repair or cleaning process requires a lot of time<br />

and costs, not to mention the economic failure of<br />

production or unusable batches. Damaged products<br />

cannot be sold, in the worst case they even have to be<br />

disposed with costs. Their new production results in<br />

extra costs and efforts, the products cannot be sold at<br />

a profit anymore.<br />

It is not only products and machines that are affected,<br />

however, the loss of data should not be underestimated,<br />

either. Process flows, important production data<br />

and even customer data may be lost in case of power<br />

failures and must be restored at great effort. Once<br />

again, economic efficiency is at stake.<br />

Security of supply & cost savings by power<br />

failure prevention<br />

Here's the good news: together we can prevent such<br />

risks and failures and make your application sound<br />

and economical. It is possible – with modular energy<br />

storage solutions designed to your needs.<br />

Commeo energy storage solutions automatically take<br />

over as soon as voltage loss is registered. Supplied<br />

with energy from the powerful battery storage system,<br />

your machines will continue running over a predetermined<br />

period of time without power loss, or they have<br />

sufficient time to run down in a controlled manner and<br />

without any damage. Commeo battery storage systems<br />

are suitable for offline or online UPS.<br />

This type of storage solution may easily be combined<br />

with self-generated power (e.g., by PV) and used for<br />

peak shaving. This way you solve two to three application<br />

cases and secure your economic efficiency with<br />

just one investment.<br />

Using your battery system to the maximum, it’s payback<br />

period is significantly reduced. What is more,<br />

being able to use self-generated power whenever you<br />

need it makes you more independent from buying<br />

power, which in turn makes you more independent<br />

from your energy supplier.<br />

Bridging short and long power cuts<br />

Companies depending on automated production<br />

suffer between 15 and 20 power failures a year. We<br />

are not necessarily talking about complete power<br />

failures lasting several hours, it is short outages<br />

lasting minutes that are so challenging. Quite often<br />

they pass unnoticed, but where sensitive processes<br />

or machines are concerned, they may have devastating<br />

consequences.<br />

And that is exactly what our portfolio is targeted at.<br />

Due to their high capacity, our energy storage solu-<br />

© Commeo<br />

Unexpected power failures or voltage dips inevitably<br />

lead to major damage to production, data<br />

centres or critical infrastructures. Many other<br />

application areas may be affected as well. What can<br />

we do to secure a self-determined, independent,<br />

and reliable power supply and act economically at<br />

the same time?<br />

Production safety at stake<br />

We are all aware of the dangers and the risk of economic<br />

losses in case of power failures.<br />

Still, they keep happening unexpectedly. Fluctuations<br />

in the power grid are by no means rare and may<br />

be caused by volatile power generation, short cuts<br />

or damaged power cables, for example in result of<br />

construction works.<br />

The effect on your applications may be disastrous.<br />

When (production) machines, IT systems and robots<br />

stop without warning, this not only leads to production<br />

or process standstill, but may also cause severe<br />

material damage. In metal production for example,<br />

a planned shut-down of the machinery is essential<br />

to avoid damage to the machine and the workpieces<br />

through strong load fluctuations.<br />

Or take the producers of packaging film, who operate<br />

with very sensitive machinery as well. In case of a<br />

non-secured power failure the plant will come to an<br />

immediate standstill. The heating elements will stop,<br />

the plastic film will tear, and sticky plastic will cover<br />

the entire machine. In order to restart the plant, the<br />

whole machine has to be carefully dismantled and<br />

thoroughly cleaned with chemical agents.

tion concept. Our systems are in development in<br />

cooperation with TÜV Rheinland standards regarding<br />

battery safety.<br />

Because of the measures mentioned above, Commeo<br />

systems may be installed exactly where energy is needed<br />

– no need for separate battery rooms or complicated<br />

safety precautions.<br />

© Commeo<br />

Great savings potential<br />

Moreover, battery storage systems may help to reduce<br />

the cost of power supply by storing excess energy<br />

from renewable energy sources such as solar or wind<br />

turbine plants and deploy it when needed. This may<br />

contribute to making private households and companies<br />

more independent from fossil fuels and more<br />

expensive power sources.<br />

tions can easily compensate short power failures as<br />

well as strong fluctuations in order to safeguard your<br />

production and protect your machines. This is the very<br />

strength of the Edge UPS system, which is modularly<br />

adaptable to virtually any individual need on part of<br />

the battery as well as the power electronics.<br />

Our Commeo Edge UPS systems designed for 48 Volt<br />

provide the best possible decentralised protection<br />

from power failures. Thanks to the high-energy lithium-ion<br />

battery technology used by Commeo, the Edge<br />

UPS delivers particularly high performance for machine<br />

applications in relation to the required surface.<br />

In order to centrally secure the entire or part of the<br />

operating range it is also possible to use energy<br />

storage solutions in form of UPS systems based on the<br />

pouch cell, whose performance and capacity should<br />

be precisely matched to the respective enterprise,<br />

however, so as to provide maximum protection for the<br />

desired bridging time. This is where complete energy<br />

cabinets or even containers are used. Their capacity<br />

starts at 54 kWh and – depending on respective requirements<br />

– goes up into the MWh range. Likewise, the<br />

modularity of performance starts at a few kilowatts<br />

and goes up into the megawatt range. These solutions<br />

consist of Commeo battery storage systems like the<br />

integrated UPS, not UPS inverters.<br />

Starting from a capacity of 3.3 kWh already, the UPS<br />

system provides a voltage of 400 Volt A/C and enables<br />

a 1- or 3-phase uninterrupted power supply at a constant<br />

power of 12 kW.<br />

High security level<br />

All Commeo battery storage systems meet a unique<br />

safety level that allows for a simplified fire protec-<br />

All in all, battery storage systems are a reliable and<br />

cost-efficient solution in the protection from power<br />

failures and the conversion to renewable energy<br />

sources. As both battery storage systems and renewable<br />

energy sources are increasingly accepted, they<br />

will make a solid contribution to a reliable, secure and<br />

sustainable power supply in future.<br />

Who we are: Commeo GmbH -<br />

energy storage solutions.<br />

Commeo GmbH located in Wallenhorst near Osnabrück<br />

in Lower Saxony is a fast-growing enterprise that produces<br />

its own powerful, innovative, and individually<br />

designed energy storage and management solutions,<br />

thus setting new standards in one of the most important<br />

future-oriented technologies. The latest lithiumion<br />

technology in a well-proven, efficiently air-conditioned<br />

housing, combined with the highest safety<br />

standards and modular design, results in perfectly<br />

tuned and yet adaptable systems devised by German<br />

researchers and developers for a broad spectrum of<br />

applications in all areas of industry, from production<br />

to energy supply.<br />

When are battery<br />

storage systems safe?<br />

Following several incidents over the past year involving fires in lithium-ion storage<br />

systems, battery storage safety has become a hot topic – and will be increasingly<br />

important as demand for stationary energy storage continues to grow. How are manufacturers<br />

attempting to mitigate the risk of fire?<br />

The majority of experts agree that lithium-ion storage<br />

systems are essentially safe if they use state-of-theart<br />

technology and meet EU standards. At the same<br />

time, however, there are countless videos on the<br />

internet of burning E-Bikes and mobile phones – all<br />

equipped with lithium-ion batteries. So should we just<br />

assume that stationary storage systems represent a<br />

fire risk? Four incidents last year involving products<br />

from a German battery storage manufacturer appear<br />

to confirm this. The manufacturer pointed to damage<br />

to the battery cells, which is difficult to detect.<br />

The safety concept is key<br />

The safety of a battery storage system depends not<br />

only on the quality of the battery cells, but also on<br />

the overall concept. This should be tailored to the<br />

components used and the intended purpose.<br />

Battery manufacturer Tesvolt is setting a good example<br />

in this respect. It takes the issue of safety very<br />

seriously and applies a multi-stage safety concept:<br />

the selection of safe, high-quality components; rigorous<br />

production controls and secure installation; and<br />

monitoring of cells and modules during operation of<br />

the storage system. Tesvolt also works with the prestigious<br />

independent testing institute, TÜV Rheinland.<br />

“Tesvolt not only submits its finished storage systems<br />

to us for testing, it also involves us during the product<br />

development phase, to make its energy storage systems<br />

as safe as possible,” reports Roman Brück, Head<br />

of the Components, Power Electronics and Certification<br />

Department at TÜV Rheinland. “Unfortunately,<br />

product safety testing is not yet a matter of course<br />

within the storage system industry.”<br />

Component quality<br />

Tesvolt purchases extremely safe prismatic battery<br />

cells from Samsung SDI, which have been subject<br />

to long-term testing and proven to be effective in<br />

a wide range of global applications. The company<br />

buys its inverters from SMA Solar Technology and<br />

also sources all other components exclusively from<br />

accredited partners.<br />

Production testing<br />

The company carries out partially automated complete<br />

cyclic conditioning at its Wittenberg, Germany<br />

production site. Every battery module is fully charged<br />

and discharged and tested for any irregularities with<br />

Safety features of the battery cells used by Tesvolt<br />

regard to temperature, voltage and internal resistance.<br />

Finally, fully automated end-of-line inspections<br />

ensure maximum safety, with every battery cell tested.<br />

If there is the slightest deviation from the standard<br />

or any other anomaly, the affected battery module is<br />

automatically removed.<br />

Secure installation<br />

“The company responsible for installing and operating<br />

the system is also responsible for ensuring that<br />

the installation, service and operation are planned<br />

and executed in line with the manufacturer’s<br />

specifications and in accordance with the applicable<br />

standards,” says Dr Victor Schäfer, Battery Expert at<br />

Tesvolt, who is responsible for battery storage certification<br />

in the Research & Development department.<br />

He is also an expert in DIN and VDE (DKE) for stationary<br />

energy storage system standardisation at the<br />

German Commission for Electrotechnical, Electronic<br />

& Information Technologies. “There are many aspects<br />

for which the manufacturer can provide training to<br />

help installers gain accreditation. At our Tesvolt<br />

Academy, we invest heavily in our installation partners.<br />

We provide assistance – if required – from the<br />

planning stage onwards. And our specialist partners<br />

can contact us at any time during all other project<br />

phases. Having thorough technical documentation is<br />

also very much a safety factor.”<br />

Safety during operational mode<br />

All Tesvolt storage systems are subject to six safety<br />

mechanisms. For example, a safety fuse will interrupt<br />

the electrical current if the unit experiences a short<br />

circuit or overcurrent. In the event of excess pressure,<br />

a safety valve on the cell opens to compensate.<br />

Sturdy aluminium housing protects every cell from<br />

mechanical damage. In addition, an active external<br />

switch is accessible from the outside, disconnecting<br />

the storage system from the power supply in dangerous<br />

situations.<br />

Battery management<br />

“The heart of our safety concept is our battery management<br />

system which constantly monitors every<br />

battery cell. If a cell exceeds its safe operational<br />

range, this activates the ‘safe state’, which interrupts<br />

the power supply,” says Simon Schandert, CTO and<br />

co-founder of Tesvolt.<br />

The battery management system not only monitors<br />

the voltage, temperature and state of charge of the<br />

battery cells, but also constantly checks whether the<br />

measured values are plausible. This also improves safety<br />

and protects against overcharging, deep discharge<br />

and short circuiting.<br />

Testing by external experts<br />

Tesvolt’s battery storage systems are tested in<br />

accordance with IEC standards 62619, 62620, 61000,<br />

61<strong>01</strong>0, 61508 and UN38.3. In addition, Tesvolt is ISO<br />

90<strong>01</strong>:2<strong>01</strong>5 certified for the successful implementation<br />

of quality management throughout the company. TÜV<br />

Rheinland has also classified Tesvolt battery storage<br />

systems as safe. The storage systems have therefore<br />

passed the prestigious institute’s rigorous safety<br />

tests, making Tesvolt one of the few manufacturers<br />

on the market that can verify the safety of its energy<br />

storage systems for commerce and industry with certification<br />

from the independent testing institute. The<br />

certificate confirms both the electrical and functional<br />

safety of its products.<br />

lot has happened in the past year: legislators are creating the framework conditions,<br />

the automotive industry is fine-tuning the technology and a field trial on the EUREF-<br />

Campus in Berlin proves that it is possible to provide valuable services to the energy<br />

system and earn money with mobile batteries without stressing them.<br />

If the German government has its way, 15 million<br />

fully electric vehicles will be on the roads by 2030,<br />

their batteries acting like gigantic decentralised<br />

electricity storage units in an intelligent power grid,<br />

ready to step in within seconds in the event of supply<br />

bottlenecks from renewables. This underlines the importance<br />

of this concept: 15 million BEVs correspond<br />

to a capacity of around 800 gigawatt hours (GWh). In<br />

comparison: all German pumped-storage power plants<br />

only have a capacity of 40 GWh.<br />

"Electric cars represent a huge potential that will<br />

take the energy transition towards a renewable power<br />

system to new levels. If we use these possibilities, the<br />

volatilities and bottlenecks in the electricity supply<br />

will be a thing of the past," explains Marcus Fendt,<br />

Managing Director of The Mobility House.<br />

Marcus Fendt, Geschäftsführer von The Mobility House<br />

For the owners of EVs, the integration of their car<br />

also offers advantages. "Fill up on sun and wind"<br />

when this kind of electricity is abundant, therefore<br />

cheap, and deliver the energy as soon as demand and<br />

prices are high, which means energy derives from<br />

CO 2<br />

-heavy sources. Earning money while sleeping<br />

sounds like the dream of every e-mobility enthusiast.<br />

Especially since the automotive industry is<br />

also following this trend by putting V2G-capable<br />

vehicles on the market or announcing such models:<br />

Nissan, Honda and Hyundai are pushing bidirectional<br />

charging. The VW MEB platform is announced to be at<br />

least "bidi-ready".<br />

One cog must fit perfectly into the other<br />

If this plan is to become reality, several obstacles<br />

still must be overcome. "The interaction between the<br />

individual components, from the car battery to the<br />

wallbox to trading on the electricity exchanges, is<br />

complex. For the smart grid concept to work, all the<br />

cogs must mesh perfectly, like clockwork, with the<br />

software being something like the oil that makes the<br />

whole system run smoothly," Marcus Fendt clarifies<br />

the challenges.<br />

The Mobility House and AUDI AG demonstrated in a<br />

field trial on the EUREF-Campus in Berlin last year how<br />

car owners can earn money while at the same time<br />

charge more electricity from renewables. In order to<br />

replicate conditions as realistically as possible and<br />

thus prove the everyday suitability of the concept,<br />

the 18 stationary battery units at the Campus, which<br />

originate from the Audi e-tron all-electric e-SUV, were<br />

treated like a fleet of mobile vehicles:<br />

• EVs park on average <strong>23</strong> hours/day and cover only<br />

36 km/day, although the batteries allow an average<br />

range of 400 km. This means that drivers do not<br />

have to limit themselves because of the marketing<br />

of the batteries. Conversely, the energy storage<br />

units are only marketed or controlled while the<br />

vehicle is parked.<br />

• To simulate the operation of a BEV in detail, those<br />

responsible used a simulated driving profile of a<br />

German EV based on average values determined by<br />

AUDI with an electricity consumption corresponding<br />

to a mileage of 18,250 km/year. Charging and<br />

discharging was carried out with eleven kW.<br />

• During the project, each vehicle battery was made<br />

available to the energy market with a maximum<br />

of 38 full cycles/year. Since the 18,250 km driven<br />

correspond to approximately 46 full cycles, this<br />

results in a total of 84 cycles. A value well within<br />

the vehicle manufacturer's warranty. The intelligent<br />

algorithms of The Mobility House’s technology<br />

prevent excessive ageing of the batteries.<br />

• The manufacturer's specifications regarding the<br />

state of charge (SoC) were meticulously followed.<br />

After plugging in the "vehicle", the battery was<br />

charged to at least 30 percent, and at the latest<br />

when driving off, the SoC was at least 60 and a<br />

maximum of 95 percent.<br />

The result underlines the opportunities that arise<br />

from marketing the mobile storage units on the electricity<br />

exchanges. Extrapolated to one year, the Audi<br />

e-tron-battery ideally achieved a revenue potential of<br />

1,556 € at the energy markets. However, taxes, levies<br />

and operating costs still have to be deducted from<br />

this sum so that at the end 650€ per EV/year for the<br />

customer are in principle realistic. In Germany, the<br />

double burden of taxes and levies is the main reason<br />

why revenues are dwindling.<br />

Precise Legislation is needed<br />

In addition to a functioning technology, the legal<br />

framework conditions must also be in place to make<br />

participation in the smart grid palatable to BEV users.<br />

The prospect of earning enough money from the<br />

provision of the batteries to at least get the traction<br />

current back should make a difference. However, these<br />

revenues do not currently reach the customer, as they<br />

are "eaten up" by the costs and levies.<br />

In addition to the expensive purchase and operation<br />

of "smart" electricity meters, the bidirectional<br />

wallbox and the energy market applications of the<br />

aggregator, the taxes and levies and the electricity<br />

tax have a negative impact in Germany. This must<br />

The test setup on the EUREF-Campus in Berlin with 18 mobile storage<br />

units from the Audi e-tron.<br />

change, otherwise this important instrument of the<br />

energy transition will fizzle out. For this reason,<br />

traction current should be treated like electricity that<br />

is currently consumed, so that the state does not lose<br />

any revenue.<br />

What needs to be done:<br />

• Establish a cost- and process-efficient registration<br />

and delimitation of bidirectional charging electricity.<br />

• Enable market-based procurement of flexibility for<br />

the electricity grid and marketing in the electricity<br />

market.<br />

• Establish variable energy and grid tariffs: Market-based<br />

grid tariff mechanisms must be used to<br />

ensure that only necessary grid expansion takes<br />

place and that the grid is not burdened by energy<br />

market optimization.<br />

• Stringent grid connection conditions for charging<br />

infrastructure as well as uniform definitions of<br />

terms in all relevant laws and regulations.<br />

There is still a lot to do if an intelligent power grid<br />

supported by decentralized mobile storage systems is<br />

to become reality. But there is no question that there<br />

is no alternative to the concept of bidirectional charging<br />

if the energy transition is to succeed.<br />

Glasfaserforum 20<strong>23</strong><br />

Intelligente Verzahnung von eigenwirtschaftlichem<br />

und gefördertem Ausbau<br />

Moderation – Andreas Spiegel, Micus Strategieberatung GmbH<br />

24.05.20<strong>23</strong> 09:00 – 14:00 DE Free of charge E-<strong>world</strong> CCE West, Saal Berlin<br />

Über die intelligente Verzahnung von eigenwirtschaftlichem<br />

und gefördertem Glasfaserausbau<br />

informiert das Glasfaserforum am 24. Mai. Damit dieser<br />

gelingt, bedarf es einer vertrauensvollen Kooperation<br />

zwischen Netzbetreibern, öffentlicher Verwaltung<br />

und Politik. Die Beschleunigung und Digitalisierung<br />

von Genehmigungsprozessen, die Nutzung von Open<br />

Access statt Doppelausbau, ein gezielter Einsatz der<br />

Fördergelder sowie das Eingehen strategischer Partnerschaften<br />

werden wichtige Erfolgsfaktoren für den<br />

flächendeckenden Glasfaserausbau in Deutschland<br />

sein. Im Zusammenspiel unter den Netzbetreibern<br />

und im Austausch mit der Politik wurden in jüngster<br />

Vergangenheit entscheidende Weichenstellungen für<br />

den Glasfaserausbau vollzogen, auf die beim Glasfaserforum<br />

20<strong>23</strong> genauer eingegangen werden soll. Das<br />

Glasfaserforum 20<strong>23</strong> möchte den unterschiedlichen<br />

Akteuren eine Bühne geben, um den praktischen Umgang<br />

mit der neuen Marktsituationen zu diskutieren.<br />

GEN COLLABORATION<br />

15:00 – 16:30<br />

15:00 Europe’s economies are transforming at unprecedented<br />

pace to shake off their reliance on fossil fuels. A new,<br />

net zero trade and investment landscape is emerging<br />

from this unparalleled shift and at the heart of this<br />

change is one of the simplest possible molecules,<br />

consisting of just two protons and two electrons held<br />

together by electrostatic forces - hydrogen. The UK and<br />

Germany have much to gain from greater collaboration<br />

on hydrogen. The UK has the largest offshore wind<br />

market in Europe and the biggest project pipeline, and<br />

Germany is set to account for more than half of the<br />

combined hydrogen import demand in Europe. Join our<br />

discussion on the future of UK-DE hydrogen collaboration<br />

and how businesses and investors can get involved!<br />

notwendigen Überblick über Energieverbrauch<br />

und -erzeugung genau wie den Netzzustand in allen<br />

Netzebenen und damit die Voraussetzung für gezielte<br />

Ausbaumaßnahmen. Damit die von der Digitalisierung<br />

geschaffenen Potentiale genutzt werden können,<br />

müssen die einzelnen digitalisierten Systeme kompatibel<br />

miteinander sein, um möglichst nahtlos miteinander<br />

zu interagieren.<br />
