Power-to-X Technology Delivers Energy Decarbonization Opportunities

Transition to a carbon-neutral energy economy requires a more environmentally-friendly energy carrier. Hydrogen and its multiple end-use applications play a huge role to contribute to decarbonization of major sectors of the economy. Power-to-X (P2X) is an interconnections concept between the different energy carriers, which promotes the integration of renewable energies, facilitates the balancing of the electricity grid and enhances the sustainable use of surplus energy production. By coupling several technological processes across different industries, P2X technology enables utilization of waste energy, excess power, and captured carbon dioxide (CO2), which contribute to energy economy. This research service, ‘Power-to-X Technology Advancements and Techno-economic Perspective’ provides a review of all technologies involved in Power-to-X system, their applications, and market prospects.

The findings and growth opportunities depicted in this study will help to drive the economic growth and technology revolution of the power-to-X industry.
P2X technology is in a relatively early stage of deployment due challenges like low efficiency and high cost compared to conventional energy generation. The research study presents key stakeholders involved in technology development and innovative Power-to-X projects that help validate technology feasibility. Special attention is given to the techno-economic analysis of technology and future roadmap.
The technology has potential to disrupt the market in the coming 5-10 years.

The study deeply illustrates the following:

  • Power-to-X technology trends, factors driving adoption and development of Power-to-X technologies
  • Key properties, drawbacks, research and development (R&D) activities
  • Power-to-X technological chain with technology alternatives , applications, market and future prospects
  • Technology ecosystem: innovative projects and key stakeholders
  • Techno-economic analysis of Power-to-X technology
