Train of Trainers on Renewable PtX

From 9 - 18 January 2023, the International PtX Hub organised a comprehensive 10-day training on the topic of Renewable PtX in Mainz and Berlin. Technical experts in the field of renewable energy from 10 partner countries attended the training. 

Technical, economic, and political aspects of PtX formed part of the training. Based on the inputs given, participants could exchange ideas and develop country-specific additions to the content. Energy professionals from India, Ms. Kajol, Manager at Energy Program, World Resources Institute and Mr. Vivek Jha, Consultant and Independent Researcher, participated in the 3rd Train-the-Trainers workshop. Besides the content-related elaboration on Renewable PtX, the soon-to-be trainers attended knowledge sessions on methodological and didactic aspects and enjoyed inputs from technical experts. To gain first-hand experience, the group went on an excursion to the Energiepark Mainz along with a tour of the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences. The course programme was described as value-packed, well-curated, informative and interactive. Both participants shared their key takeaways which included the need to build additional renewable energy capacities to ramp-up PtX production. After attending the workshop, the participants are now gearing up to implement the PtX training with the International PtX Hub in their respective countries.
