Future energy systems using solar energy and liquefied natural gas cold energy
The switch to renewable energy sources has been motivated by an increasing electricity demand, finite fossil fuel reserves and environmental concerns. However, renewable energy and conventional fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) will both play an important role in the future energy market. With this in mind, the EU-funded SO-LNG-ORC project aims to develop a holistic systematic method for a future energy system design. The design will comprise an integrated organic Rankine cycle for the simultaneous utilisation of solar energy and LNG cold energy. The project’s results will pave the way for energy systems that are highly efficient and profitable yet present little risk and have low environmental impacts.
