Renewable energy carriers from variable renewable electricity surplus and carbon emissions from energy consuming sectors

Demonstration of renewable energy carrier synthesis from variable renewable electricity surplus and carbon emissions from energy consuming sectors, which is targeting improvement of the overall synthesis value chain efficiency and viability while making best use of the CO2 emissions in synergy with renewable electricity generation. The incorporation of hybrids of renewable electricity with algal or synthetic renewable fuels in energy intensive sectors by integrating the conversion of surplus renewable electricity and carbon emissions from these sectors to liquid renewable energy carriers by algal, artificial photosynthesis or homologous non-solar pathways will be demonstrated. Conversion technologies should be based upon biological, biochemical, thermochemical and or electrochemical processes.

Proposals should avoid curtailing of renewable electricity and carbon emissions and improve overall efficiency and viability of renewable electricity assemblies in synergy with reduction of carbon emissions.
