The German demonstration site at Falkenhagen

The German demonstration site at Falkenhagen, Brandenburg, is dedicated for the operation of an integrated innovative Power-to-Methane plant, suitable for large scale energy storage. It comprises

  • innovative honeycomb or structured wall reactor methanation technology at 1 MW scale, utilization of CO2 from biomass related processes,
  • interconnection to the high pressure transport gas grid
  • intelligent interconnection to the transmission electricity grid and
  • potential thermal energy integration with local industrial facilities,


in order to further increase the overall efficiency and economy. The demonstration site Falkenhagen operated by Uniper Energy Storage GmbH is located in the North Eastern part of Germany representing a typical rural region with large production capacities of onshore wind power and low overall electricity consumption.
