The International PtX Hub: Catalyzing green hydrogen solutions on a global scale
In order to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, significant and rapid emission reductions are needed in all sectors of the global economy. Sustainable, climate-neutral e-fuels and feedstocks based on green hydrogen (Power to X) can contribute to decarbonising a range of industries, including chemicals, fertilisers, steel and cement, as well as parts of the transport sector that cannot directly use renewable electricity.
PtX offers a tremendous potential for our partner countries. Favorable conditions for renewable energy production lead to new business opportunities. Furthermore, the uptake of PtX can contribute to achieving sustainability goals (SDGs) on climate, energy and jobs.
The international PtX Hub aims to leverage these opportunities together with our partner countries by empowering decision makers, providing a network, generating and distributing knowledge and stimulating exchange.
The PtX Hub is located in Berlin, a centre for technological innovation, creativity and political leadership.
Working with our partner countries and organisations, the newly founded International PtX Hub aims to facilitate a global breakthrough in sustainably produced synthetic e-fuels and feedstocks in sectors that cannot directly use renewable electricity. In line with the Paris Agreement (NDC) and Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030), the PtX Hub will:
Integrate sustainable PtX into comprehensive climate strategies
Achieve PtX potential in partner countries
Foster international exchange
Build capacities in partner countries by generating knowledge
The International PtX Hub is being implemented by GIZ and is funded by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
In 2020 the International PtX Hub will focus its activities on actively shaping the discussion surrounding sustainability criteria. In addition, we will help to elaborate business cases and facilitate market opportunities for Power to X adoption. In this connection, we will work with our global network to develop capacities in partner countries by providing training courses and e-learning tools.
