About Power-to-Gas:


The term "power-to-gas" refers to energy production and storage technology that permits megawatts of electricity stored in reserve. By connecting existing power and natural gas grids, the current network infrastructure can be leveraged. This allows for the seasonal storage of large amounts of power and the provision of CO2-neutral fuels in the form of renewable energy source gas. The global report on the power-to-gas market is provided with the segment analysis on the basis of technology, capacity, end-user and region.


On the route to a new renewable energy age, power-to-gas is a complete system solution to the problem of excess energy reserves. Electrolyzation is used to manufacture hydrogen from extra wind energy, as well as methane in a second step. The hydrogen produced can be stored in the existing natural gas network for subsequent use.

Several Countries Are Shifting To Renewable Energy Sources


Several countries like the UK, Korea, and Spain are driving power-to-gas market by shifting towords renewable energy sources and investing in R&D to make a big decarburization transition. Because fossil fuel supplies are limited and unable to supply the world's ever-increasing energy demand, it is critical to developing technical ingenuity to stimulate renewable resources to meet the demand.


Owing to environmental concerns, regions like Europe have set lofty goals to incorporate renewable energy sources and reduce overall energy usage. Economies like Spain are good examples where plans have been developed to cover the energy demand of over 100% renewable resources by 2050. The primary goal, however, is to reach 42% of the energy demand being seen by renewable resources by 2030.


Reduction of Carbon Footprint:


The concept of carbon footprint has raised consumer and producer awareness of the amount of CO2 emitted and the dangers it poses to the environment. As the globe places a greater emphasis on reducing carbon emissions, there is a growing demand for items that are environmentally friendly and made using renewable resources. The rising awareness of the need to reduce CO2 emissions has resulted in an increase in demand for power-to-gas market. As a result, the Paris Agreement and its mandate for different countries to take quantifiable efforts to reduce the average world temperature becomes a critical first step towards reducing climate change's adverse effects.


Governments Support to the Power-To-Gas Industry:


Various countries and their governments are taking massive steps or initiatives in support of the power-to-gas market. Various governments have established goals for boosting renewable energy-based electricity producing capacity. The use of hydrogen in the transportation sector is also a crucial factor propelling the industry forward. Fuel cell autos use hydrogen to power their motors, and increasing hydrogen use in the transportation industry will be a cost-effective choice. The power-to-gas technology is particularly useful due to its reduced weight and zero-emission rates. In the foreseeable term, the numerous benefits will propel the market potential to new heights.


Opportunities for the Power-To-Gas Market:


The public's knowledge of environmental issues is growing, as are demands for a reduction in CO2 emissions. Coal and natural gas, for example, are nonrenewable fuels that produce hazardous gases and waste. As a result, the reliance on renewable energy sources is growing. It will boost the market's economic growth rate to new heights. The governments of several countries have established a goal to enhance electricity generation capacity in the near future, resulting in a rise in power-to-gas market value. Market trends are always changing, and the continued rise of the transportation sector for hydrogen will present significant market growth prospects in the coming years.


Impact of COVID-19 on Global Power-To-Gas Market:


The pandemic of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the power-to-gas market. The global gas sector is experiencing a dramatic reduction in demand. Due of the COVID-19 pandemic, the chemical, transportation, and industrial production industries were hampered for 4 to 6 months in 2020. Electrolysis and methanation expansion plans are projected to be pushed back by at least a year. The pandemic could be good to the electricity to gas industry in the long run. Green gas and the reduction of harmful emissions into the environment would be the focus of global governments.


The demand for electricity in residential regions was far greater than in business and industrial areas during the lockdown. With a power supply mix that included renewables, demand shifted more towards renewables, and market growth improved steadily. The demand for coal-based, gas-based, and nuclear-powered energy consumption, on the other hand, has dropped sharply, which will help the market value expand in the near future.


Global Power-To-Gas Market Segment Analysis:


The Global Power-To-Gas Market is segmented by Technology, Capacity, and End-User.


Based on Technology, Electrolysis segment is expected to hold the largest power-to-gas market shares of 62% by 2027. Electrolysis accounted for US$ 17.65 Bn. in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.5% over the forecast period 2020-2027. This is thanks to its flexible operations and ability to successfully incorporate electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources like wind and solar. These are the key benefit that drives the growth of the Electrolysis segment in the global market during the forecast period. However, Methanation segment was valued US$ 11 Mn. in 2020 and CAGR of 10.05% over forecast period.


Based on Capacity, 1000 kW and above segment of power-to-gas market is expected to grow rapidly at a CAGR of 12.45% during the forecast period. This is due to an increasing commercialization and implementation of several MW level projects of power to gas technologies, as well as demand from utilities and industrial end-users, 1000 KW and above capacity is widely preferred. These are the key factors of 1000 kW and above segment that drives the growth of the global market during the forecast period.


Based on End-User, Utilities segment is expected to grow rapidly at a CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast period. The utility industry is increasing as power and gas utilities seek to create hydrogen more efficiently by incorporating intermittent renewable power source and maintaining power system flexibility. These are the major factor that drives the growth of the utilities segment in the power-to-gas market during the forecast period.
