Africa’s Lake Kivu contains fixed quantities of gas, which makes it both dangerous and valuable.
Since this summer, Rwanda has been winning green gas from Lake Kivu. That’s a good: should the gas release spontaneously, it will be perilous.
Floating gas plant – Kivu Watt – is located in Lake Kivu on the border of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. Approximately 65 cubic kilometers of methane with a value of at least 40 billion dollars, will be extracted. This is important for Rwanda since the economy is growing and the energy demand grows. But there is more. Read More
the Power-to-Gas (P2G) approach can facilitate a transition from natural gas to a ‘green’ mixed gas by making use of both of the existing energy grids on a global scale
Power-to-Gas is the process of converting surplus renewable energy into hydrogen gas by rapid response electrolysis and its subsequent injection into the gas distribution network. One of the most promising energy storage systems to storage renewables into the existing EU gas infrastructure.
The hydrogen produced is injected into the natural gas system to displace natural gas, so reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reliance upon fuel imports.
If the power is derived mainly from renewable power sources, only low-carbon hydrogen will be produced. Thereby the Power-to-Gas (P2G) approach can facilitate a transition from natural gas to a ‘green’ mixed gas by making use of both of the existing energy grids on a global scale.
Large dams produce hydro-electricity, but also they accelerate climate change with two degrees.
Megahydro provides of lots of power with relatively little expense, but environment advocates often oppose projects because they drown significant amounts of otherwise valuable land, erasing cultural resources and drowning entire ecosystems and produce methane.
