UN Climate Change Conference: BMU sets up international knowledge and networking platform for synthetic energy sources based on green electricity.

The Federal Environment Ministry wants to expand international cooperation on sustainable synthetic fuels and chemical feedstocks from green electricity (power-to-x). Today at the UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid, Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze announced the establishment of a Power-to-X Secretariat that will in future serve as a platform for an international power-to-x network. The secretariat will be based in Berlin. Power-to-x refers to technologies used to produce synthetic fuels and base materials from electricity.

For energy sources that are actually sustainable, it is crucial that the base product is green hydrogen produced using wind and solar energy. The goals of the Federal Environment Ministry initiative include to improve global exchange of knowledge, better determine the climate action potential of these products and jointly develop sustainability criteria for their application.
