Hydrogen in gas network planning

Climate policy poses major challenges for gas suppliers. This has led a growing number of suppliers to develop long-term network plans. We have already assisted many suppliers in this process. The Swiss Gas Industry Association (VSG) commissioned us to conduct an in-depth study of the issues involved. To present our results, we referenced a real city to show what effect different energy scenarios have on such target network planning. Special attention was paid to scenarios with hydrogen.

Our services

  • Modelling the development of a city’s gas sales using a building park model (3 scenarios)
  • Consideration of mobility and combined heat and power as future uses
  • Analyzing the impact of scenario selection on a target network planning
  • Drafting of network variants to account for the use of hydrogen
