Feasibility study on power-to-X at a power plant site, Germany

Feasibility study on power-to-X at a power plant site, Germany
As a result of the energy transition, capacity utilization at many fossil-fired power plants in Germany has been continually falling in recent years. However, their fully developed sites with extensive infrastructure offer great potential for future facilities that could become more important in the course of the energy transition. In this specific project, Fichtner advised a client on the selection of possible power-to-X solutions for an existing power plant site. In addition to performing a technical assessment of the technologies in terms of their feasibility at the site, we analyzed the impacts on the site’s safety as well as the requirements for tying it into the gas grid.
