World's Largest Power-To-Gas Plant Opens in Stuttgart

Germany Trade & Invest shares the latest business opportunities at this year's IRES 2012

BERLIN, Nov. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - The development of renewable energy in Germany has taken a leap forward with the inauguration of a power-to-gas plant in Stuttgart. With an electrical power demand of 250kw and a maximum output of 300 cubic meters of methane per day, it is the largest facility of its kind in the world. Its objective is to solve the problem of renewable energy utilization and storage. Germany Trade & Invest will have experts at this year's IRES 2012 event in Berlin from November 12 to 14, 2012 to inform visitors about the latest business opportunities in the renewable energy industry.

"Germany has shown great initiative to combat the problem of long-term storage and the federal government has shown unprecedented financial support. The German Energy Agency is working jointly with expert stakeholders from business and research to unleash the benefits of using natural gas grids in order to effectively promote renewable energy sources," said Thomas Grigoleit, renewable energy expert at Germany Trade & Invest in Berlin.

Germany is highly dedicated to its role in the energy revolution. This was recently confirmed at the energy summit in Berlin where Chancellor Merkel and the German states promised even better coordination of renewable policies.  As a result, Germany possesses the proper investment climate to remain the ideal business location for renewable energy development.
