The FutureGas project
The FutureGas Project
The FutureGas project’s main purpose is to enhance the usage of gas in the Danish energy system.
There are 7 different work packages, in which the project is divided into.
Read about the recent published results from the FutureGas project.
Rasmus Bo Bramstoft Pedersen has been working on combining energy system assessment tool Balmorel-OptiFlow and energy systems model MUSE to create even better ways of calculating the optimal form of future gas energy systems. This he has been doing at the Sustainable Gas Institute as part of his PhD at the Technical University of Denmark Read more about Energy system modelling[…]
In April, a delegation from the Central African country Gabon, visited the FutureGas project at DTU in Denmark as part of a study trip to Europe. At DTU they met with Marie Münster and Tara Sabbagh Amirkhizi, and Peter Kristensen from HMN Gasnet. The delegation was in Denmark to seek Read more about International delegation visits FutureGas project[…]
Poul Erik Morthorst, project lead for the FutureGas project, will continue his work as a member of the Council on Climate Change. He has been appointed by the Danish minister of energy, utilities and climate, Lars Christian Lilleholt, to continue his work at the Council on Climate Change the next four years, starting march 1st, Read more about Morthorst continues at Council on Climate Change[…]
DTU PhD-student Tara Sabbagh Amirkhizi was interviewed by The Florence School of Regulation (FSR), also a partner in the FutureGas project. In the interview, Tara Sabbagh Amirkhizi explains into detail what the FutureGas project and its work packages are about. Tara herself works with Work Package 6, and she will continue to do so during her Read more about FSR Energy interview[…]
FutureGas’ annual seminar was held in September. Representatives from all parts of the gas sector were present. Over the course of two days all relevant topics for the project were discussed. Amongst the topics for debate we hybrid heating pumps, advanced mathematic modelling, hydrogen’s potential for the gas sector, how gas can contribute to the Read more about Annual FutureGas seminar[…]
The recently signed Energy Agreement ensures that the importance of the role of gas in the green transition is recognized. The Energy Agreement calls for a dedicated gas strategy. The results of the FutureGas projects can contribute to this strategy greatly. All parties of the Danish parliament supported the Energy Agreement, which guarantees a continued Read more about Gas strategy in new Energy Agreement[…]
The FutureGas project has published a report about the development of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure and natural gas vehicles (NGVs). The report is a state-of-the-art review on the development of natural gas vehicles and its fuel supply infrastructure. It was made by Dejene A. Hagos and Erik Ahlgren from Chalmers Read more about Report: Gas for transport[…]
The GasAkademin Summer School was held from August 13th-17th. The participants met in Sweden, where they, in the green surroundings of Vellinge, had the opportunity to learn more about the production, transport and utilization of energy gas. The FutureGas project was also present with a delegation. The organizational force behind the summer school was EnergiForsk, Read more about GasAkademin Summer School 2018[…]
Congratulations to Poul Erik Morthorst who could recently celebrate his 40 years anniversary. At the same time he decided to resign his position as Head of Division for Systems Analysis for DTU Management Engineering, but he will continue at DTU and as project leader of FutureGas. Poul Erik is among Denmark’s greatest research capacities within gas.
Hydrogen Denmark ended this year’s People’s Political Festival on a high note with a debate on the role of gas in the green energy transition. The Futuregas-project served as the foundation for this debate and the participants were the CEO of Hydrogen Denmark, Tejs Laustsen Jensen, Professor and head of department at DTU Management Engineering, Read more about GasDebate: The role of gas in future energy systems[…]
The futureGas project
Gas has a number of advantages seen from a system perspective: It is an efficient and highly flexible fuel to utilise characterised by high ramping rates; it can be used by a wide number of applications including industrial processes, CHP and transportation; it is fairly easy to store especially in Denmark with two large storage facilities; and, finally, the climate impact is limited with low CO2 emissions from natural gas and none or even negative from gas based on renewable sources.
The FutureGas project includes all major stakeholders of the Danish gas industry and the main purpose is to contribute to growth and green transition through interdisciplinary and coordinated research across the gas sector.
