Technology concept/solution:
Agri-e's concept is an energy system that uses biogas as energy supply. The biogas is used to produce hydrogen, electricity and heat. The process also results in clean CO2, readily captured. By converting biogas into both hydrogen and electricity, the energy utilization is better than if the biogas alone was used as fuel.

Agri-e is developing and testing two modular energy system solutions in their pilot project for increased energy efficiency. With methane as energy source (biogas, biomethane and natural gas) for production of clean energy and CCUS opportunities. System 1, biogas to hydrogen and heat. System 2, biogas to hydrogen, electricity, and heat. The pilot systems are scaled down industrial solution working 24/7.  

Agri-e focus on decentralized production of clean energy and utilization of the green CO2 with positive climate results, energy efficiency (80%), flexibility and security, and increased local value creation. The pilot project will provide the basis for scale-up and commercial deliveries from Q1.2024.
