The transmission system operators Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE) want to jointly develop intelligent sector coupling and implement a large-scale demonstration project. To this end, in the scope of the hybridge project the partners are designing a power-to-gas plant with input of 100 megawatts.

The lighthouse project planned by Amprion and OGE aims to transform an electrical input of 100 megawatts into hydrogen and will cost around 150 million euros. This investment is marginal in relation to the economic benefits that sector coupling on an industrial scale can deliver in future. If it is possible to integrate power-to-gas plants into the energy system in a practical way, end customers will benefit considerably from this in the long term.
