Renewable hydrogen has the potential to play an important role in the just transition to a net-zero economy in both developed and developing countries. Developed countries with high energy demand and limited renewable resource potential will need imported renewable hydrogen and hydrogen-based products to meet their decarbonisation targets. On the other hand, renewable resource-rich countries with a large potential for green hydrogen development, mostly located in the Global South, see the hydrogen economy as an opportunity to enhance their socio-economic development and contribute to global decarbonisation.

Under the umbrella of the International PtX (Power-to-X) Hub, Agora Industry, in collaboration with the Öko-Institut, launched the Business Opportunity Analyser (BOA) version 1.0 in June 2008. Since then, the tool has been further improved and transformed into a web application with all the features of version 1.0. In addition, an optimisation methodology has been implemented to calculate cost-optimal capacities and load factors of individual system components.

The tool allows users to calculate the cost of delivering PtX molecules from an exporting country to an importing country, highlighting the competitive advantage of one country over another. This “pre-feasibility” level information will help to identify regions with promising business opportunities within the PtX value chain. Such information will also assist policy makers in understanding their country’s specific PtX cost potentials, thereby supporting the development of targeted policies to facilitate investment in PtX value chains. The BOA will have a global scope, covering most potential exporting and importing countries, including a deep dive analysis with more regional detail for Argentina, Morocco and South Africa.

In this webinar, colleagues from Agora Industry and Öko-Institut will provide an introduction to the PtX Business Opportunity Analyser version 2.0, explaining the structure, data, outputs and other key features of the BOA. The event is scheduled to last 1 hour and 30 minutes, including an interactive commentary by

  • Micaela Carlino, Instituto Torcuato Di Tella (ITDT), and
  • Rebecca Maserumule, International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy (IPHE)

and a Q&A session with the audience towards the end.

Attendance is free. The event will be recorded and published afterwards. The presentations will also be made available afterwards.

We look forward to your participation and an interesting discussion!
