Flexibility technologies

At Ignitis Renewables, we recognize that the expanding landscape of renewable energy heightens the need for enhanced energy storage and balancing solutions. Our commitment is to develop a flexible system designed to efficiently harness and manage 100% green energy across short, medium and long-term.


Batteries enable the integration of renewables by facilitating the demand management, helping improve the grid reliability while limiting the output curtailment. Batteries have roles in a variety of markets – balancing, ancillary, frequency containment reserves and day-ahead arbitrage. Rapid development of renewables in the region is increasing the demand for balancing and grid services.

Power-to-X technologies

Power-to-X or P2X is the term used to describe energy conversion technologies that can convert renewable electricity into carbon-free fuel. Hydrogen, ammonia, synthetic methane or methanol can be used for energy storage and are essential for decarbonising the industrial and transport sectors. The development of these technologies is an important part of the European Union’s green economy and is a key tool in attaining global climate goals and decarbonising industry, transportation and power generation.

Our strategy is to pursue the development of a pilot project, leading to the full commercialisation of power-to-X technologies in the longer term.

Renewable hydrogen and other green fuels

Where will hydrogen and green fuels be used? 

Methanol, synthetic methane and ammonia are usually referred to as key alternative green fuels. With the implementation of renewable-source-based energy systems, energy conversion to hydrogen will gradually take place as a practical measure to absorb large amounts of surplus electricity.

Energy converted to hydrogen can be conveniently reverted to electricity for peak energy demand periods or for long term storage. It can be converted to other e-fuels when combined with carbon dioxide or nitrogen gas collected from fossil fuels or ambient air.

Hydrogen is expected to be used mainly as a short-term energy storage measure rather than as a direct fuel in transport or other sectors. Heavy industry or fertiliser activities may adopt green hydrogen as feed-stock for production earlier.

Green fuels, however, are expected to be used directly in transportation, light industry activities or energy generation during peak demand periods to support other energy storage methods.
