Industrial use and Power2X
Power2X gives the possibility to provide demand response flexibility in the electricity system and other grid services
Today, the world's hydrogen demand is almost entirely supplied by fossil fuels, with 6% of global natural gas and 2% of global coal going into hydrogen production.
Consequently, the production of hydrogen is responsible for CO2 emissions of around 830 million tons of carbon dioxide per year.
Norwegian Hydrogen will produce and deliver green hydrogen, enabling zero emissions from industrial processes using hydrogen.
The process of converting electricity produced from renewable energy into energy carriers such as hydrogen is called Power2X. X being hydrogen in this case. This enables greater flexibility for long-term storage and use of the energy later, at any location.
With Power2X, hydrogen can be produced when the wind is blowing or when the sun is shining and stored for later, enabling a higher amount of renewables to supply the grid.
