Flexible Power Generation – ETN Webinar Series – 2nd episode
“FLEXnCONFU. Power-to-X-to-Power solutions for flexible, carbon-free and efficient energy generation”, the second episode of ETN’s new webinar series on Flexible Power Generation, took place on 3 November 2020.
The goal of the FLEXnCONFU project is to develop and demonstrate innovative, economically viable and replicable Power-to-X-to-Power (P2X2P) solutions that combine all available options for the effective and flexible use of surplus power from renewable energies to levelling the power plant load by converting electricity into hydrogen or ammonia prior to converting it back to power.

On the Flexible Power Generation webinar series:
To achieve the EU 2030 and 2050 Climate and Energy goals, a high penetration of renewable energy sources (RES) into the grid is required. In this context, the role of the fossil fuel power plants will have to increasingly shift from providing base-load power to fluctuating back-up power (i.e. ramping up and down) in order to control and stabilise the grid. However, this poses several challenges in the operation due to increased wears and tears of the power plants components, as well as a reduction in efficiency and increase of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per unit of produced electricity.
The objective of this webinar series is to shed the light on the actions taken by the EU and the industry to meet these challenges and pave the way for a carbon-neutral energy system that would ensure at the same time secure and affordable energy supply. The series is organised by ETN Global, with the support of ETIP SNET and in cooperation with five EU Horizon 2020 projects: FLEXnCONFU (grant agreement n. 884157), HYFLEXPOWER (grant agreement n. 884229), PUMP-HEAT (grant agreement n. 764706), sCO2-flex (grant agreement n. 764690), and TURBO-REFLEX (grant agreement n. 764545).
