The International Power-to-X Hub (PtX Hub) is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the  Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).

The International PtX Hub is a center for technological innovation overview, creativity, and political leadership located in Berlin, Bonn, and Brussels. We are working in the innovative field of converting renewable energy into synthetic fuels and other chemicals that will eventually allow the use of green energy for maritime transport and aviation as well as the chemical, fertiliser, steel and cement industry. On behalf of the German government, we develop criteria for a sustainable ramp up of a hydrogen economy, build international networks, conduct trainings, advise developing and emerging partner countries and prepare studies and reports about PtX.

Power-to-X enables us to produce anything historically dependent on fossil fuels with renewable electricity and carbon. PtX offers a tremendous economic potential for developing countries and emerging economies. Due to their favorable conditions for renewable energy production, they can leverage new business opportunities with Power-to-X and become frontrunners in emerging PtX markets. Not only can countries accelerate their economic development with PtX and become less dependent on fossil fuel imports, they can decrease their CO2 emissions at the same time – taking an important step towards reaching their climate goals.

The PtX Hub accompanies its partner countries closely and supports them in designing a regulatory framework that both stimulates the emerging PtX-production and consumption pathways while ensuring benefits for the sustainable development of the country.

As an addition to our policy team, we are looking for an Advisor PtX Policy (m/f/d) who is well versed in EU regulation, particularly on aviation, and able to advice our partner countries (with focus on North African countries) on regulatory concerns.
