POWER-TO-X ALLOWING THE FINAL PUSH TO 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY

The intermittent nature of renewables will need flexible solutions to balance them in the future as well. The demand for green hydrogen and renewable synthetic fuels is growing significantly as industries are seeing it as a way to decrease their carbon footprint. Power-to-X is one of the key components to reach the final 100% while mitigating climate change, allowing a carbon neutral society.
