FLExibilize combined cycle power plant through power-to-X solutions using non-CONventional FUels

Project description

Innovative power-to-X-to-power solutions

The use of alternative carbon-free fuels in existing power plants and a high penetration of renewable energy sources into the grid are required in order to meet EU 2030 and 2050 climate and energy goals. As such, combined-cycle gas turbine plants represent a crucial technology with the required flexibility to compensate for the intermittency of renewable energy sources like wind and solar. The EU-funded FLEXnCONFU project will develop innovative, economical, viable and replicable power-to-X-to-power solutions to be integrated to existing and new power plant to level the load, and to un-tap their flexibility, converting electricity into hydrogen or ammonia to be in turn locally re-used in the same power plant to respond to varying demand, thus reducing time their environmental impact. A 1MW scale power-to-hydrogen-to-power system will be integrated in a real operational environment in Portugal (EDP’s Ribatejo power plant) while a small-scale power-to-ammonia-to-power solutions will be coupled with a mGT properly modified to burn ammonia in Savona Smart Microgrid laboratory.
