The EU low-carbon roadmap towards 2030 sets binding targets of at least 32% shares of renewable energy in the Union’s gross final consumption, 40% reduction in carbon emissions and 14% renewable energy within the final consumption of energy in the transport sector. The European power and industrial sectors have to tackle with CO2 emissions reduction, to increase their energy efficiency and shares of renewable energy sources (RES). Carbon Capture and Utilisation combined with energy storage can address environmental and energy efficiency challenges in a cross-sectoral and cost competitive approach for sustainable energy and chemical production. Shifting from only biomass oriented solutions with resource availability and food competition issues to low carbon efuels leads in the reduction of fossil fuel imports and allows the use of curtailed RES electricity. The integration of Power to Fuel technology in must run CHP plants and energy intensive industries with focus on CO2-derived methanol is presented.
Dr. Efthymia Ioanna Koytsoumpa is working in Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH at the Power Energy Solutions Business Unit. Her main focus area is Energy Storage Solutions and Carbon Capture and Utilisation. She has a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering accomplished at National Technical University of Athens, where she has also performed her PhD on the topic of power to fuel and gasification technology for the production of methanol and SNG. She has accomplished her Diploma Thesis in Technische Universität Graz and has worked in Friedrich Alexander Universität in Nürnberg and in the Center of Research and Technology Hellas, CERTH.
