Exploring synthetic methane for a greener Japan
Japan has ambitious plans to decarbonise its energy sector that includes the importation of 100,000t of synthetic methane annually from 2030. To evaluate the feasibility of such a scheme, a consortium of Japanese energy and trading companies turned to Mott MacDonald.
We conducted a four month, fast-track study into three possible production countries in the Middle East. By drawing together a multidisciplinary project team spread across five different countries and four time zones, we leveraged real-world expertise in renewables and green hydrogen production, gas, water, electricity transmission, and energy policy and economics....
