March 2018: Framework scenario for grid expansion in Germany includes Power-to-X technologies

March 2018

Every two years the four German electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) develop framework scenarios to determine their grid expansion plans. The current framework describes four scenarios for the possible development of the German electricity sector. Considering the increasing importance of sector coupling, the scenarios include for the first time a detailed estimate of the potential for three Power-to-X technologies. All of the scenarios place the potential for Power-to-Heat at 3.3 GW. The potential for Power-to-Methane varies from 0.2 to 0.6 GW and for Power-to-Hydrogen from 0.8 to 2.4 GW. To determine this potential the German TSOs referred to a study on Power-to-X applications conducted by the Research Center for Energy Economics.
