German environmental groups: PtX-tech not ‘necessarily’ climate-friendly

By |julij 30th, 2019|CO2, energy and environment, Energy transition, Germany, hydrogen, News, power to gas, power to x, PtX, Renewable energies|

So-called Power-to-X (PtX) technologies are seen as a good way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions because their potential for storing energy could stabilise the electricity grid. However, German environmental groups BUND and the Öko-Institut have criticised the technology. EURACTIV Germany reports.

Audi, the German car manufacturer, is pitching ‘e-fuels’ as a clean alternative to produce petrol, diesel or gas, without having to extract fossil fuels. Sounds splendid but unfortunately too good to be true, warns Jonas Helseth.
