On March 12, 2018 a delegation of 23 senior IOCL managers met with VDMA members to discuss the future role of alternative fuels such Hydrogen, LNG and energy efficiency. VDMA gave an introduction on the German Energy Transition and the consequences for the maritime and petrochemical sectors. Germany’s industry is faced with various challenges connected with the decarbonization. An efficient energy transition in Germany and Europe will only work if the power, transport and heat markets will be coupled via power-to-X technologies. VDMA members offer power-to-X solutions already today.
12.03.2018
In order to achieve the ambitious, long-term energy and climate targets, the energy transition must not be reduced to a "turnaround" in the power sector only. In fact all energy sectors – power, mobility and heat – have to be coupled in an efficient way. The VDMA formulates requirements for a successful energy sector coupling in it’s VDMA Position Paper. Power-to-X process plays a key role.
