“With the help of Power-to-X, climate-neutral synthetic gas can be produced which reduces the carbon footprint in a wide range of applications without the need for major infrastructural investment,” said Marc Grünewald, head of business development, Power and New Energies at MAN Energy Solutions.
“For example, CO2 emissions can also be reduced in all areas where the use of batteries is not possible. This applies, for example, to international shipping where complete electrification is not technically feasible, especially in the case of container ships.”
At an upcoming trade fair in March, MAN Energy Solutions will present its portfolio of energy storage solutions including Power-to-X applications, ETES (Electro-Thermal Energy Storage) energy management system, as well as battery-storage and hybrid systems for decentralised energy generation.
Dr Uwe Lauber, ceo of MAN Energy Solutions, said: “The use of storage technologies with different capacities is essential for the future success of the energy transition. It will only be possible to reduce CO2 emissions if renewable energy is also available outside of the grid. Therefore, our solutions enable the use of green electricity as heat and cold or in the form of climate-neutral fuels, for example in shipping. This is how we connect electricity, heat and mobility.”
