Power-to-X (PtX) also Power-to-Anything) is the general term for processes that convert electrical power into fuels (Power-to-Gas, Power-to-Liquid), raw materials for industry (Power-to-Chem) or other energy forms. To make PtX products, pure hydrogen is first obtained from the source products – power and water – by electrolysis. As the first PtX product, hydrogen is the basis for all other products. By adding CO2 or other carbon compounds, it is possible to produce further synthetic energy sources and chemical base materials such as methanol and kerosene. This process is only carbon neutral if the electricity is generated from renewable energy sources and the CO2 is removed from the atmosphere (Direct Air Capture) or if it is based on non-food crops. If this is the case, the PtX products are considered ‘green’. Key Findings Background China, with a total of 10.5 Gt of CO2 in 2018, is the world’s biggest emitter of…

Please click here to download: China Transport Sector Policy Briefing Issue 6 2018 In the end of 2018, the Chinese government started significant measures to advance its logistics industry, while planning to strengthen the hydrogen fuel cell production in Jiangsu. Furthermore, new developments regarding New Energy Vehicle (NEV) and Intelligent and Connected Vehicle (ICV) industries were omnipresent. Reinventing the logistics industry, cleaner air for Beijing, intelligent ship building, battery recycling and hydrogen fuel cells Beijing intends to aid the phase out of heavily polluting heavy duty vehicles (HDVs) in the capital city. Since 1 December 2018, CHINA III diesel-fueled HDVs registered in Beijing are no longer permitted within…

Hydrogen is not only a means of storing energy, but also a valuable resource that can fuel transportation vehicles and can be used in various production processes. As the pioneers in this area, both Hebei Province in China and the state of Brandenburg in Germany hope to develop their new energy economy by establishing a closer cooperation with each other in the hydrogen industry. From 11 to 14 September 2018, a delegation from the state of Brandenburg led by State Premier Dr. Dietmar Woidke visited Hebei Province and hosted the workshop “Hebei-Brandenburg Conference on Renewable Energies and Hydrogen” in the city of Zhangjiakou. Organized by Brandenburg Invest, the workshop offered a platform to present projects and companies working on sustainable energy in China, Germany and worldwide, as well as opportunities to explore potential bilateral cooperation between companies and institutes from both countries. In the opening remarks, Ms. Li Hong, Vice-Mayor…
