CONVERT RENEWABLE POWER SURPLUS
INTO GREEN HYDROGEN AND SYNGAS FOR STORAGE

The Jupiter 1000 project is the first industrial demonstrator of Power to Gas with a power rating of 1 MWe for electrolysis and a methanation process with carbon capture. Green hydrogen will be produced using two electrolysers involving different technologies, from 100% renewable energy. The installation will be based on an innovative methanation technology and CO2 will be captured on a nearby industrial site. In the light of the performance levels shown by the demonstrator, GRTgaz and its partners will work on future technical and economic standards of a full-sized installation of this type. Over the longer term, the idea is to launch the Power to Gas activity in France. More than 15 TWh of gas could be produced each year using the Power to Gas system by 2050.

PROJECT MANAGER

GRTgaz owns and operates 32,000 km of underground pipelines in France and 28 compresssor stations to transmit natural gas between suppliers and consumers (distributors or industrial firms directly connected to the transmission system). GRTgaz performs a public service role in guaranteeing security of supply to consumers and sells transmission services to system users. As a significant player in the energy transition process, GRTgaz is investing in innovative solutions to adapt its system and to reconcile competitiveness, security of supply and environmental protection. 

PARTNERS

ATMOSTAT designs, develops, manufactures and sells highly critical mechanical equipment for the energy, aeronautics, defense ans space markets.

The CEA is a major player in research, development and innovation. It intervenes in four main fields : low-carbon energies, information technologies ans health, defense ans global safety technologies. 

CNR is the first frecnh company with 100% renewable energy field (water, wind, sun). 

The Jupiter 1000 project is financed jointly by the European Union (ERDF), the French State (investments in future, entrusted to the ADEME) and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region of France.

The project has also been approved by the Regulatory Commission of Energy (CRE)

and the Capénergies competitive cluster.
