Across Europe, environmental initiatives now require that 20% of energy comes from renewable sources to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels. Energy supply companies are faced with how to meet these targets quickly which means using the same transmission networks and equipment.
Although biomethane has been injected into the natural gas transmission grid for many years, this does not help reduce carbon emissions. Hydrogen, however, is a way for energy companies to store the excess energy produced by solar or wind power: the electricity is used to separate hydrogen from water through the process of electrolysis.
Energy companies together with government bodies are working to inject up to 20% H2 into the grid as a standard procedure. Although there is still some work to go before this goal is reached, Michell’s fleet of installed natural gas moisture analyzers are ready to cope with this new gas mixture.
