Electrochaea developed a disruptive grid-scale energy storage technology known as Power-to-Gas. The process converts low-cost and stranded electricity into pipeline-grade renewable gas for direct injection into the existing natural gas grid. The core of Electrochaea’s Power-to-Gas system is a selectively evolved microorganism - a methanogenic archaea - that excels through unprecedented catalytic ability and industrial robustness. Electrochaea’s power-to-gas technology represents a commercially viable solution for utility-scale energy storage, grid balancing, and carbon recycling. The company was founded on basis of research results at the University of Chicago and was relocated to Munich, Germany in 2014.
