First PtX atlas published

The Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology (IEE) has presented the world’s first PtX Atlas. It presents temporal-spatial high-resolution simulations for a first non-European power-to-X volume scenario as well as country-specific location analyses of the production characteristics and long-term production costs of electricity-based fuels. This will provide stakeholders from politics and industry with comprehensive insights into the study results.

Many regions of the world offer good conditions for the production of green hydrogen as well as renewably generated synthetic fuels. How large the respective potentials are in detail is shown by the global Power-to-X Atlas. The evaluation of the technical and economic potential is based on extensive analyses of, for example, land availability and weather conditions. The researchers also took into account factors such as local water availability, nature conservation, investment security, and transport costs. The PtX Atlas is available online since June 1, 2021.
