Hydrogen, power-to-X & CCU

In order to achieve national and international decarbonization targets in various sectors, it will be necessary to produce renewable hydrogen, raw materials and energy carriers based on it in large quantities. These processes for using electrical energy from predominantly renewable sources to produce hydrogen by means of electrolysis and, optionally, its synthesis into further products are summarized under the term “Power-to-X”. This thus also encompasses the active use of carbon sources and emissions, such as CO₂, for the production of renewable energy sources, raw materials and products under the collective term Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU). This also includes research into the intermediate storage of CO₂ as a resource.

In addition to techno-economic and ecological analyses of the various Power-to-X pathways, the Energieinstitut an der JKU Linz also analyzes the socio-technical as well as legal and regulatory challenges for the production, storage, distribution, and use of Power-to-X products. The Energieinstitut an der JKU Linz contributes these competencies in particular to the projects of the Hydrogen Energy Model Region (WIVA P&G) as well as to international projects.
