Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


This chapter looks at a non-conventional large scale energetic storage system integrated with membrane technology, designed to produce and store methane as a source of power. The opportunities for using low cost electrical energy, generated by a renewable energy source such as wind, are also described. An analysis of a case study, ProGeo, is shown, which suggests how to accumulate electricity as chemical energy and satisfy the energy peaks and seasonal storage by using methane in a smart system. © 2014 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
