Industrial players (Engie, Colruyt/Eoly, Hydrogenics, Port Zeebruges, Fluxys and Elia), Ghent University (Department Electrical Energy, Metals, Mechanical Constructions & Systems and Department of Economics) and WaterstofNet are backing the ‘Greenports’ study project. On Monday the 21st of January the study’s kick-off meeting took place in Brussels. With the port of Zeebruges as a case study, the group will now consider future possibilities for a large-scale conversion of wind energy to hydrogen in harbour areas.

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.

One of the Power-to-Gas cluster partners, E. Van Wingen N.V., introduces its cogeneration on hydrogen in the programme Z Energy on Kanaal Z. The Flemish producer of cogeneration plants with internal combustion engines, tells us about the future of cogeneration in smart grids, about the necessity of storage and flexible production components to achieve a 100% renewable energy and about maximum energy-efficiency with the cogeneration plant on hydrogen.​
