1. A method for providing storable and transportable energy carriers (108) comprising the following steps:

  • providing carbon dioxide (CO2) as a carbon supplier,providing electrical DC power, which is generated by means of renewable energy technology,performing a water electrolysis using said electrical DC power to produce hydrogen as an intermediate product,combining the hydrogen (H2) and the carbon dioxide (CO2), to react them to form a first methanol portion,providing gas containing oxygen, which arises during the performance of said water electrolysis,providing hydrocarbon-containing gas,performing an oxidation of the hydrocarbon-containing gas using the gas containing oxygen to form a second methanol portion.
