Europe is faced with a complex and challenging restructuring of its energy system. Increased penetration of variable renewable energy resources is a challenge for the stability of the transmission system. There is an obvious need for back up capacity, as well as energy storage. Pumped storage hydro power is one of the most economical storage alternatives, and Norway has the necessary reservoir capacity. However, in order to offer balancing services to Continental Europe, increased transmission… 
A technical, economic and environmental analysis of renewable gas produced from power to gas systems
Power to gas (P2G) methane, pumped hydroelectric storage (PHES) and compressed air energy storage (CAES) are three methods to store surplus electricity with high capacity and long discharge time.
