Gas to Power Webinars - POWER-TO-X WEBINAR - 11 Oct 20222 - 15:30 BST London Time
Power-to-X Webinar
Rising electricity supply from wind and solar power is good for the planet but challenging for grid operators. Converting surplus volumes of zero-carbon power into storable fuels spreads the environmental benefits across sectors – helping to decarbonize industry and transport. The power-to-X process allows for just that by converting green electricity into a carbon-neutral synthetic fuels, storable until needed.
