Reducing the dependency for fossil resources goes hand in hand with replacing traditional technologies by new processes. One of the main challenges on this journey is the switch from continous energy generation to fluctuating energy sources, like wind and solar. Power-to-X technologies will help to level energy supply and demand. Moreover, the generated "buffer" represents a true value, as the chemicals produced may serve as fuels or as resources for high-price products.

The event aims to reflect the diversity of the topic by bringing together users, technology experts and solution providers as well as energy producers to stimulate cross-disciplinary discussions and the exchange of ideas. Established business cases will be presented alongside with future ideas and descriptions of the regulatory background—an issue that is of utmost importance for the further development of Power-to-X.
