Integration of thermal gasification in the energy system

Coal, oil and gas | January 2016 - January 2017

The analyses contribute to the foundation that will lead to the formulation and implementation of a strategy for thermal gasification. The project comprises work package 2 in a EUDP project managed by The Partnership for Thermal Gasification (Partnerskabet for Termisk Forgasning) which ran from August 2014 to July 2017.


The aim of the project was to investigate the long-term perspectives for thermal gasification in the future RES-dominated energy system, and how to best integrate thermal gasification in the energy supply. The main focus of the project was to investigate the following questions:

  • What will it take for gasification plants to become competitive suppliers of gas to the gas grid?
  • Is there a future for smaller combined heat and power plants based on local production of gasification gas?

As part of the project, the optimisation model Balmorel was further developed to be able to optimise the integrated district heating, electricity and gas system. The model was used to identify which composition of technologies and fuels delivered the most cost effective energy system. A wide range of scenarios for 2050 were developed with varying conditions such as new fuel prices, CO2 prices, electricity prices, technology costs, etc.
