Hydrogen and Power-to-X technologies in Europe are booming. After all, clean hydrogen has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions enormously and make a decisive contribution to climate protection. But what opportunities does hydrogen offer Europe, the German and European engineering industry? What can the massive expansion of hydrogen technologies in Europe achieve? What is the situation on the labor market, for example? This is what Dr. Carola Kantz, Deputy Managing Director of the VDMA Power-to-X for Applications working group, will tell us.
2.53: What exactly are we talking about when using the term Power2X?
6.47: What would this potentially mean for the local economy and job market
8.42: How are other important industry nations/ regions look at hydrogen / Power-to-X?
11.48: What does the Ramp-up look like in numbers at the moment?

The Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) represents around 3,200 members, making it the largest industry association in Europe. The VDMA working group "Power-to-X for Applications" is a cross-industry platform for exchange, communication and cooperation in the P2X community. It involves all important stakeholders, from the development of manufacturing processes through the production of synthetic fuels and raw materials using power-to-X technologies to the end customer. Dr. Carola Kantz is deputy managing director and representative of the AG Power-to-X for Applications in Brussels.
