Enagas working on plan for specific development of renewable gases
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Feb.4
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Spanish Enagas has created last year a new company 100 percent owned by Enagás SA, to invest in projects related to renewable gases, specifically with hydrogen and biogas-biomethane, mainly for seasonal energy storage and grid injection purposes: EnaGasRenovable, the company told Trend.
Given its commitment to the energy transition and sustainability, Enagas said it is committed to non-electric renewable energy (biogas / biomethane and hydrogen) as new energy solutions that allow progress towards a more sustainable model of energy supply.
Like other European gas companies, Enagas has been working for a long time to incorporate renewable gases into the decarbonisation process of the natural gas chain.
“The new subsidiary EnaGasRenovable will integrate the projects already underway based on renewable energy (among others, biogas / biomethane and hydrogen): Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca; Power-to-Gas projects currently under development; Joint ventures with major waste managers.
Enagas said it promotes the use of gas infrastructures and the development of renewable gases as a way to gradually reduce emissions and improve air quality in a cost-efficient manner.
“In the framework of the presentation of its Sustainability Strategy in 2030, the Technical Manager of the System has mentioned that hydrogen can play an important role in the path towards decarbonisation. The company is actively working on a Plan for the company for specific development of renewable gases and use of gas infrastructure as the ultimate safety net of the Spanish energy system, within the framework of the announced climate objectives,” said the company.
With a view to emission neutrality, hydrogen is positioned as the “closing vector” of the energy system, with unlimited potential, capable of allowing seasonal energy storage and meeting the demand of all sectors, said Enagas.
