Invitation to Power-to-X workshop: niche markets and incentive structures in Denmark
The workshop analyses the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of Power-to-X in Denmark in order to investigate on niche markets and suggestions for incentive structures and public regulation to push the development further.

Power generated from wind turbines and solar power covered 49% of the Danish electricity consumption in 2019, which is a new record. In the light of national targets, the future Danish electricity system will be based on an even higher amount of variable renewable energy sources. This calls for large-scale energy storage technologies that convert and store excess electricity as hydrogen or methane (Power-to-Gas). The stored gas can be further converted to liquid electrofuels for the transportation sector, or sold to other high value markets (Power-to-X). The EP2Gas project explores one of the most promising routes for Power-to-Gas: combining high temperature electrolysis based on the solid oxide electrolysis cell technology, thermal gasification of biomass, and downstream upgrade of the synthesis gas to methane. In order to design large-scale Power-to-X plants for electrofuel production and identify niche markets and required incentive structures for a future fossil-free Danish energy system taking advantage of this technology, we welcome researchers and practitioners from Denmark to participate in the workshop.
The project EP2Gas is funded by EUDP.
