Although a global market ramp-up of green hydrogen and power-to-x (PtX) in itself promises benefits with respect to climate-neutrality and sustainability, these benefits are by no means automatically unlocked. In designing supply chains and policy frameworks, key elements of sustainability need to be taken into account in order to ensure long-lasting positive impacts for all stakeholders directly or indirectly involved. In this context, sustainability means more than reducing (carbon) emissions. A successful market ramp-up must address all dimensions of sustainability: environmental, economic, social and governance (EESG).
The digital discussion series "Power-to-X and Sustainability – Addressing challenges and opportunities for development" takes six different perspectives to look at the green hydrogen / PtX value chain. Each of the three online discussions presents two specific perspectives and the participants together with the experts identify relevant challenges and opportunities to overcome concerns. The Wuppertal Institute and the International PtX Hub organise three rounds of online discussions with the following focal topics:
The discussion series provides a topical input for each of the perspectives. Participants are invited to share their expertise and views to help to identify solutions for the multidimensional barriers to green hydrogen production in developing and emerging countries.
