Gas to wire: positive business case

The development of the gas field does not depend on existing gas infrastructure. Potential fields do not have to be close to a gas pipeline but within reach of the electricity network at sea.


That is for example within a radius of 70 km from a wind farm. TNO calculations that show that Gas to Wire would not be economically feasible are based on a different assumption. Namely, from a platform on an almost empty, unprofitable field. Our plant is designed for a daily production of 3 GWh (3 million kWh). That is enough for more than 350,000 households.



The expansion of the electricity grid on the North Sea, which is the result of the enormous investments in offshore wind, provides Circular Energy an opportunity to produce the small gas reserves. After our first 'Cranberry' platform many more will follow.
