Green hydrogen and PtX
Green hydrogen and sustainable electricity-based fuels and base materials (Power-to-X)
In the medium and long term, green hydrogen and electricity-based fuels and base materials, also referred to as PtX (power-to-X), will make a significant contribution to climate action and the decarbonisation of economies on the national and international level. In addition to the direct use of hydrogen, they can be used as alternatives to fossil fuels, in particular in energy-intensive industries with process-related emissions such as the steel industry and parts of the chemicals sector. They may also be a suitable replacement in areas of transport in which the direct use of electricity is unlikely to be technically feasible even in future (for example aviation and long-distance shipping).
