The brand-new proposal for a PtX-strategy places export of Danish PtX-technologies as one of the national benchmarks for the country’s green transition by 2030. 

Recent PtX-analyses underline the promising potential for hydrogen and PtX-exports to neighbouring countries like Germany. Already today, Germany has a hydrogen demand of 55 TWh, which is estimated to rise to 110 TWh by 2030. In order to live up to this rising demand, the new German government has announced the establishment of 10GW national electrolysis capacity up to 2030. Moreover, the German hydrogen strategy has set out 15 bill. kr. to establish energy partnerships for the import of hydrogen and PtX-products.

These plans harbour a huge export potential for Danish companies along the entire hydrogen value chain – from technologies for hydrogen, methanol, and ammonia production, to the establishment of PtX-infrastructure for direct export of hydrogen to Germany.

The Confederation of Danish Industry and the Danish-German Chamber of Commerce are therefore organising a seminar on February 1st, 2022 to pave the way for a leading Danish-German export collaboration on PtX, making the huge German market potential and state-of-the-art Danish PtX-technology meet.

At the seminar, we are presenting and discussing Germany’s market potentials for PtX and how Danish companies can leverage on these potentials with PtX-solutions customised to German demands.
