Enagás

Enagás  is Spain’s Transmission System Operator (TSO). Founded in 1972 and with now over 1,350 employees, Enagás is also the technical manager of Spain’s gas system. In addition to its transmission activities, the company manages three underground storage facilities and nine regasification terminals. Enagás operates in eight countries: Spain, the United States, Mexico, Peru, Germany, Albania, Greece and Italy.

As part of its commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2040, Enagás is engaged in developing the future Spanish Hydrogen Backbone, with its solid network of natural gas infrastructures as a starting point, some of which will be converted to hydrogen as demand is expected to shift. In addition to its involvement in the H2med project, Enagás aims to build a strong national hydrogen transmission network, with several projects already considered, which will lay the foundations to turn the country into Europe’s first renewable hydrogen hub.

About

REN

REN – Gasodutos is Portugal’s exclusive Transmission System Operator (TSO). It is part of the REN group (“REN”), which operates both the electrical and gas transmission infrastructure in the country. With ca 719 employees, REN also operates a liquid natural gas terminal, underground gas storage facilities, as well as one gas distribution operator. The gas TSO activities started in the late nineties, when the first high pressure pipeline was created in Portugal in 1997.

REN is at the core of the energy system in Portugal and acts as an energy transition facilitator. Portugal is committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2045. To contribute in meeting this target, REN launched the H2REN Program aiming to assure the adequacy of existing infrastructures to incorporate blending of H2 in the natural gas transmission grid and storage infrastructures and to identify the roadmap to repurpose them to 100%. Infrastructures may then gradually be converted to 100% hydrogen, to follow the transition of customer demand. Also, two new natural gas storage cavities are to be developed, with the ability from the design phase to be ready to operate in 100% hydrogen environment when required.
