Manage today’s networks with tomorrow’s gases (smart grids, IOT…)

“The smart grid is a key requirement for optimizing the injection of low-carbon renewable gas and thus meeting the challenges of the energy transition.”

(Pierre-Yves Rousset, Program Delegate)

  • The integration of renewable and low-carbon energies is leading to far-reaching changes in the gas network (distribution – transmission) and the prospect of multi-energy connection (gas/electricity/heat)
  • The integration of renewable and low-carbon energies is leading to far-reaching changes in energy system management, from top-down to remote mode requiring more dynamic management
  • These changes call for the development of smart management
Major challenges
Scope
  • Network interconnection devices (reverse-flow stations)
  • Simulation tools specific to the injection of new gases
  • Communicating devices (connected sensors)
  • Have an overview of network changes
  • Develop decision support modeling tools (network management and development)
  • Have the solutions needed to bring networks closer together (reverse-flow stations, IOT)
Key drivers
Looking ahead to 2030
  • Continue equipment qualification
  • Optimize the design of the reverse-flow stations
  • Analyze and test new solutions (gas-gas or gas-electricity)
  • Adapt agile network management modes
  • Support the construction of a global methodology
  • Develop a local data exchange platform to optimize network management (production, consumption, maintenance forecasts)
