Rising fuel prices, government agreements and knowledge that fossil fuel resources will run out, stimulate the search for alternative energy sources and energy carriers.
The Netherlands is dependent on natural gas for approximately 50% of the primary energy supply.
In the transition to a sustainable energy supply, sustainable gases will most probably play an important role. Sustainable gas is gas which can be produced and distributed CO2 neutrally, such as biogas, bioSNG (“Bio- synthesised natural gas”) and hydrogen.
As well as the use of sustainable energy sources, the reduction of the emission of greenhouse gases also plays a large role in the transition to a sustainable energy supply. The route to a sustainable energy supply is a complex one. Kiwa Gas Technology has built up years of experience in this area and can assist you here.
Embedding sustainable energy into the gas grid
Increasing the sustainability whilst maintaining the security of supply, reliability and safety of the present natural gas network, is an important starting point in the embedding of sustainable energy in the gas grid. We can advise you regarding the implementation of biogas as well as hydrogen in the energy supply. Our expertise comprises a unique combination of knowledge of the entire chain; gas quality, gas appliances, distribution materials and components and gas safety. Furthermore, we have fully equipped laboratories for:
- (bio)gas analyses
- testing of distribution materials and components
- development, design, building and testing of gas appliances and installations
Regarding methane emission Kiwa Gas Technology also has the right expertise in house. We are available to you for gas technical support in CDM (Clean development Mechanism) and JI (Joint Implementation) projects, e.g. concerning the reduction of methane emissions from gas stations.
We perform research and provide advice to governmental bodies (e.g. in the development of policy and setting up regulation) as well as manufacturers, network companies and energy suppliers regarding the application of sustainable gases.
