DanuP-2-Gas: Innovative model to drive energy security and diversity in the Danube Region via combination of bioenergy with surplus renewable energy

The main objective of the project DanuP-2-Gas is to support diversification of energy sources as well as generation and storage strategies for renewables in the Danube Region by advancing renewable natural gas in regional energy planning.

DanuP-2-Gas seeks to elaborate a transnational strategy that includes idle organic residue, river transportation of energy intermediates, a PtG approach to reduce strain on the electrical power grid, and joint energy networks for storage and transmission in order to define optimal geographic hub locations and test their feasibility.

To contribute to energy security this project will progress

  1. diversification of renewables > by integration of organic residues
  2. energy efficiency > through the utilization of otherwise unused surplus electricity
  3. generation of renewable energy > through pre-feasibility studies on PtG hubs
  4. integration of different energy grids > by transnational linkage of electricity and gas grid
  5. storage > by improving the framework for feed into the gas grid
  6. knowledge transfer and transnational cooperation > by associating key players in research, energy market operation and policy making
  7. political sustainability > by developing a concrete roadmap and verifying the concept in piloting actions
