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.
More than 50 people shared two days of intense discussions in the conference center KolleKolle in Værløse 25-26th of November 2019. The Annual Meeting was the last of its kind gathering the entire consortium and creating a platform for debate on the final conclusions and recommendations of the FutureGas project. You can find the presentations Read more about Final Annual Meeting in the FG-consortium[…]
Work package 2 in the FutureGas project is focussed on quality requirements for end-use of different types of gases. All the different mappings and analyzes are now finalized and the final work on interconnecting the outcomes of the different WPs is undergoing. The work from WP2 was also presented at the European Gas Technology Conference Read more about Update on WP2[…]
On October 22nd the FutureGas project hosted a workshop on sustainability and methane emissions. You can find presentations from the day here. Please note that many of them will be in Danish: Programme Introduction by Marie Münster, DTU Drivhusgasemissioner fra NG motorer til vejtransport by Jesper Schramm, DTU Tab af metan fra transmission og distribution Read more about Workshop on methane emissions[…]
PhD student Stefanie Buchholz, DTU Management, has significantly improved the methodologies for solving the capacity expansion problem. The capacity expansion problem is concerned with investing in VRE, generation units etc. to meet demand such that socio economy in the energy system is optimized. Energinet’s software Sifre/Adapt solves the capacity expansion problem and is used to Read more about Artificial intelligence in Energinet’s energy system simulations[…]
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
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.
