Plan the integration and coordination of energy systems, including electricity, gas, and thermal networks.
Plan for Hydrogen Integration
Alternative fuels cause their own mix of challenges. How do you plan for greener fuels?
The challenges the industry is facing
Gas and power interface
Changing fuel mixes impact both gas and electric systems. Technologies like electrolyzers need coordinated planning between networks.
Operational and strategic planning should be coordinated
Strategic planning without consideration of operational realities increases costs and risks. Operational planning without strategic guidance slows growth.
Different gas qualities and compositions impact gas pipeline networks in terms of operating pressures, line pack management, energy density, and other factors.
Time and cost
Multiple planning platforms and data sources increase cost and time while reducing trust in the decision process.
What are the costs and potential value of electrolytic hydrogen generated by renewable electricity?
