P2X Kopernikus project

  • Project Description

    The goal of the Kopernikus project P2X is to store renewable energy in physical substances. Accordingly, the project researches possibilities for converting electricity into chemical energy. The renewable energy stored in this way can then be used in high-emissions sectors such as transport and industry, or even for heating for industrial processes, making them more environmentally friendly.
