Eoly (Colruyt Group Energy), Fluxys, and a third partner Parkwind, have announced to join forces to explore an industrial-scale power-to-gas installation. The power-to-gas installation will convert green electricity into green hydrogen that can be transported and stored in the existing natural gas infrastructure.

Unlike demonstration projects elsewhere in Europe, Eoly, Parkwind and Fluxys envisage to realise one of the first industrial-scale power-to-gas facilities in Belgium of around 25 MW.
