Power2X is on the lips of most energy enthusiasts. The prospect of a very different energy system, where we get our energy from many different sources and technologies, is extremely interesting. Electricity production has historically been a limiting factor. However, with the development of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar in recent decades, which only produce when the wind blows and the sun shines, this has changed drastically.
Why the need for a new energy system?
Production costs for electricity have fallen and we are sometimes in a situation where we have surpluses of renewable energy from these sources. So far, there have been two options. Either you slow down the wind turbines and disconnect the solar cells, and thus lose production, or we have sold it extremely cheaply – yes, every now and then paid to send the power to, for example, Norway. Here it is used to pump water up into their water reservoirs, which can thereby produce renewable energy, which we can buy back expensively when there is no wind and the sun has set.
How does Power2X work?
Power2X is a technological breakthrough where the surplus power can be used to produce hydrogen. This hydrogen can then be further processed together with, for example, CO2 to methane or methanol, and thereby we have energy, in forms that can be stored and transported.
CO2 for Power2X technologies must, of course, be sustainable. In addition, there are some requirements for the purity of CO2. Here, the biogas plants are enormously interesting, as relatively clean CO2 flows already exist here, which until now have only been emitted into the atmosphere.
At Biogas Express, we are very aware of the potential that exists for the plants, and are actively working to realize value creation from this resource, which in the past has only been regarded as a waste stream.
