Gas as a solar fuel

An exploration of the role of gas as an energy carrier for renewable energy post-2030

At the request of Gasunie, CE Delft has carried out an exploratory study on the potential role of gas as an energy carrier for renewable energy in the near future but above all in the longer term, when the Netherlands has countless wind turbines and solar cells installed. What then? Where will the renewable energy then be sourced and how do we get it where we need it, and get it on time?
