[en] The energy transition corresponding to more electricity generation from variable and
decentralized renewable energy sources requires the development of electricity storage
technologies ranging from seconds to seasons. The power-to-fuel process provides a
way to store electricity as a liquid energy vector, leading to high energy density and
cheap long-term storage at ambient conditions. In the present work, we study the powerto-
methanol process combining CO2 capture, water/CO2 co-electrolysis and methanol
synthesis. An Aspen Plus model focussing on the electrolysis and methanol synthesis
sub-processes is presented. The energy conversion efficiency is improved from 40.1 to
53.0 % thanks to heat integration using the pinch method. Further works include the
experimental demonstration of this technology as well as the development of control
strategies for its regulation.
