Project: Intelligent electroFuel production for An Integrated STOrage System

Acronym IFAISTOS (Reference Number: 100503)
Duration 01/11/2020 - 31/10/2023
Project Topic Environmental and energy policies over the last years lead to different and fragmented national energy systems with increasing shares of renewable energy sources. The non-programmability of some of these clean technologies and the limited capacity of the power grid require innovative storage devices to decouple production and utilization and synergies between energy domains to be exploited. IFAISTOS aims to provide a long-term energy storage solution based on Power-to-gas that can integrate the electricity from renewables into the whole energy system, from gas to heating, transportation and chemicals, by means of a smart management approach. The technology will be demonstrated in four different contexts fostering its market readiness and proving its integrability in processes with a high carbon intensity. This activity, together with thorough assessments of the business model and the social acceptability, will provide a solid background for the scalable replication of this solution.
