Synthetic Fuels Are the Final Piece of the 100% Renewable Grid. In this podcast, produced in collaboration with Wärtsilä, we discuss how fuels made from green hydrogen can firm a grid with lots of wind, solar and hydro. Electricity grids can handle a lot of wind, solar and water resources. But what will help us get from 80% renewable energy to 100% renewable energy? The missing piece may be renewable synthetic fuels. “When we really want to decarbonize the whole electricity system, absolutely, synthetic fuels will play a key role,” says Matti Rautkivi, the director of business development and strategy at Wärtsilä. In this episode, produced in collaboration with Wärtsilä, we’re looking specifically at how to use green hydrogen to create renewable fuels — and how to burn those fuels to create a fully renewable electricity system.
