The Danish Gas Grid Could be Filled with Green Gas in 2035
According to calculations conducted by the Aarhus University, the gas grid in Denmark could be running completely on green gas by 2035. The production of green gas (methane) has taken a leap over the last three years in Denmark, with considerable investments being made in building new, large-scale plants that can convert biomass to gas. Read on to find out why it is realistic that the entire gas grid in Denmark could run on green gas by 2035 and how green gas is reducing to reduce the country’s CO2 emissions…

Storing Renewable energy in Flywheels
The practice of storing energy in flywheels is already being used to even out supply and demand in New York’s electricity supply. Small in size, constructed of environmentally-friendly materials and with an anticipated longer life expectancy than batteries, flywheels could be the solution to storage challenges. However, with current technology, flywheels can only store energy for ten minutes. Read on to find out how a team of researchers from Aarhus University, Danish Technological Institute and the Danish companies Haldor Topsoe and Sintex have joined forces in order to rectify this problem…

New initiative focuses on the role of gas in the green transition
While it is well known that wind energy and solar power can significantly contribute to turning a country’s energy system green, the role of gas is often forgotten. Therefore, the three gas distribution companies in Denmark have established the interest organisation, Green Gas Denmark, as a way to shine a spotlight on the potential of green gases. Following several years of research and development, biogas is beginning to take a larger role in Denmark’s energy system, given it is a CO2-neutral source of energy and can be used to balance fluctuating renewable sources. Read on to find out more about green gas…
