The Swiss demonstration site at Solothurn

4. May, the first STORE&GO „Ground-Breaking“ event in Solothurn, Switzerland
On Thursday, May 4, 2017, the construction work (Ground-Breaking) on the Power-to-Gas research facility was started in Solothurn, Zuchwil. The plant, which is built and operated by Regio Energie Solothurn, involves five other partners in the STORE&GO project of the EU research and innovation program "Horizon 2020".

More than 30 stakeholders attended the event among them numerous journalists and partners from the project. Felix Strässle, Director of Regio Energie Solothurn, welcomed the audience followed by a presentation about the Power-to-Gas plant. Subsequently, the project partners and the audience gathered outside to perform the ground breaking of the demonstration site together, to officially start the construction work.

The Regio Energie Solothurn has been operating the hybrid plant on the Aarmatt- Area southeast of the city Solothurn, for about two years. The plant uses the connection between their supply networks electricity, gas, water and district heating - also known as network convergence. Energy will be converted from one form to another and stored in one of the networks for e.g. to convert summer surplus electricity from photovoltaic systems and store it for the winter, e.g. to use it during the winter for heating. This conversion takes place in the electrolyzer via the so-called power-to-gas process.
