Power-to-X & Green Hydrogen Trainings

 
The International PtX Hub Berlin aims at creating a critical mass of people who are enthusiastic about renewable PtX and convinced that humankind can maintain and expand its prosperity without fossil fuels.

The Training at a Glance

The Power-to-X training provides a comprehensive overview of the entire value chain of PtX. It looks at the potentialities of renewable PtX in future energy systems and economies. PtX enables the transformation of renewable energy into synthetic fuels and other chemicals to obtain end products like fertilisers and cosmetics.

Following completion of this course, participants will be qualified to discuss and assess the potential production, application, and export of renewable PtX products.

Trainings & Capacity Development
Based in Bonn, Germany

As I was always interested in environmental and climate protection and fascinated by related questions of how the world can adequately secure energy supplies, I have found the perfect job here at GIZ targeting comprehensive and long-term decarbonisation solutions for the whole economy. At the moment I am working to build up a secretariat for sustainable synthetic fuels, otherwise known as PtX. Before joining GIZ in 2015, I supported a renowned Indian think tank in New-Delhi and practiced energy economics both in the German energy industry and at the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne (EWI). As an economist, I am convinced that effective climate protection is not possible without putting a reasonable price on GHG emissions.

Training Concepts
Based in Berlin, Germany

In May 2021, I joined the International PtX Hub Berlin, since then I form part of the PtX trainings team. I’m holding a master’s degree in International Economics from the Berlin School of Economics and Law. During my studies I dealt with socio-economic and ecological sustainability issues and the green transition of the German automobile industry. After my graduation, I collected working experience in the UNECE prior to join the PtX Hub.

Climate change is a multi-faceted issue that all of us are facing. I believe that only a holistic approach can tackle this challenge. With Power-to-X we can transform renewable energy into a broad range of products for agriculture all the way up to cosmetics, using mostly – but not exclusively – hydrogen as a vehicle to produce these end products. The goal is to not stop here, but to also consider environmental prerequisites and social aspects of each location and hence trigger an overall improvement of the environmental, social and economic situation in the respective regions.

I am happy to have joined the PtX Team and contribute to the spread of knowledge about the possibilities of Power-to-X technologies around the world while simultaneously learning a lot every day myself.
