PtX Cluster Zealand

Investigating and developing opportunities to make PtX technology more economically and environmentally sustainable.

Background and Purpose

Power-to-X (PtX) is a new technology that has yet to be tested on a large scale. Currently, companies, researchers, and entrepreneurs are working to develop new technologies as a competitive alternative to fossil fuels. The main challenge is that the technology is in the build-up phase and scaling up the technology has not yet proven to be economically viable.

The purpose of PtX Cluster Zealand is to create an innovative collaboration between five high-tech SMEs that are at the forefront of developing solutions to make PtX technology more economically and environmentally sustainable.

How to proceed

The project partners will address the following challenges:

  • How do we secure and optimize the supply of green energy to PtX facilities?
  • What is the value of the side streams from the facility?


At the core of the project is the transition from sustainable electricity production to PtX fuel and the possibilities of utilizing the excess products for food production. In addition, the potential value of materials and energy flows, including the need for new infrastructure (gas pipelines) regionally and inter-regionally, are investigated.


  • Implementation of 3 demonstration and scale-up projects
  • Implementation of 2 research and development projects
  • Implementation of 2 feasibility studies
  • Implementation of 5 thorough business development processes including the development of business plans for the participating SMEs
  • 5 companies have developed solutions within PtX
