Abstract

Power-to-X solutions are getting year by year more and more market interest in the present and future Renewable (RES) driven energy market scenario. Their potential coupling with Combined Cycles Gas Turbine (CCGT), which have to be present together with RES as back-bone to guarantee grid resilience and stability, is currently under investigation also in order to enhance CCGT flexibility as short-/middle-term storage solutions. The H2020 EU Funded PUMP-HEAT and FLEXnCONFU projects1study two different types of Power-to-X solutions: the former a power-to-heat concept by heat pump coupling and the latter a power-to-hydrogen/ammonia system via Electrolyser coupling), both targeting flexibility enhancement and emissions reduction. This paper presents and compares the market potential of Power-to-X solutions proposed in the two projects presenting guidelines for the upscale of the proposed Power-to-X solutions derived from a techno-economic assessment of the two Power-to-X solutions These guidelines will bring to a preliminary assessment of the flexibility and electric market potential of Power-to-X solutions coupled with CCGTs, presenting specific features per both of them such as the most techno-economic viable sizes or market characteristics to leverage Power-to-X potential. Furthermore, the market potential is presented by analysing bottlenecks and drivers (in current and future EU scenarios) that could facilitate or hamper the widespread of the proposed technologies.
