A New Horizon: The Role of powerfuels in the Global Energy Transition

In September 2018, the German Energy Agency (dena) initiated the Global Alliance Powerfuels together with renowned corporate partners as founding members. Together with the international participants of the Berlin Energy Week, we will discuss the value of powerfuels in successfully implementing the energy transition around the world. Which new business opportunities will open up when renewable energy is traded globally?

In September 2018, the German Energy Agency (dena) initiated the Global Alliance Powerfuels together with renowned corporate partners as founding members. Together with the international participants of the Berlin Energy Week, we will discuss the value of powerfuels in successfully implementing the energy transition around the world. Which new business opportunities will open up when renewable energy is traded globally? Key findings of the Global Alliance Powerfuels‘ greenpaper will provide the starting point of the discussion at this event, and then further continue in a consultation process over the next months, to arrive at a general consensus on the role of powerfuels. Which relevance do powerfuels have in the energy transition and which economic and political conditions are necessary to foster the development of a global market?

The Global Alliance Powerfuels‘ Roundtable is part of the Berlin Energy Week taking place from 8th April until 12th April in Berlin. The event builds up on the Global Cooperation on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells conference earlier that day, which discusses the necessity for global cooperation in particular in the area of hydrogen. The Roundtable’s goal is to expand the discussion towards renewable hydrogen-based powerfuels and exchange in an interactice fishbowl format.
