KOPERNIKUS-Project Power-to-X at the Hannover Fair

The more flexible the use of renewable electricity is, the more efficient the entire energy system becomes.

Only in this way can a secure, affordable and environmentally friendly supply be guaranteed. The Power-to-X approach is important in order to be able to use the renewable energies wind and sun in the mobility and industrial sectors as well. These include in particular electrolysis systems for the production of hydrogen and synthesis gas together with various process routes for power-to-liquid and power-to-chemicals. The systems will be optimized in terms of flexibility, efficiency, runtimes and costs and will be tested under real operating conditions. During the Hannover Fair 2019, future Power-to-X solutions for sector coupling were presented on the basis of an energy landscape.
