The company builds new infrastructure and enlarges existing facilities to the highest standards, making use of the best techniques available. To achieve this, Enagás strives constantly to innovate, on its own or in cooperation with other Spanish and international gas transporters and companies. It prefers to do so through membership to a variety of associations and bodies, and by attending European and global forums.
Enagás’ innovation efforts also extend to optimising energy efficiency in the management and operation of its infrastructures. This includes using waste energy from its processes and raising the efficiency of its equipment and plants.
Innovation also features in certain critical knowledge areas; e.g. process safety, gas system management and operation, and the measurement of third-party energy received and dispatched. The Zaragoza laboratories, equipped with the best human and technical resources, provide special support in this respect.
Leveraging the similarities between its core businesses, the company is capable of fulfilling one of its aims: to lead the development of innovative technological solutions using CO2 transport and storage technologies that mitigate the impact on climate change. Enagás takes part in an increasing number of initiatives undertaken in these fields.
