Methanol and Hydrogen in this Danish scheme

Amongst other things, the project entails the establishment of a 10 MW methanol plant and a 12 MW electrolysis plant. Electrical power will come from a local 80MW hybrid wind and solar PV plant.

Methanol is easily turned into hydrogen through a catalytic process, using a fuel reformer. This is done at a temperature of 200-300 °C. Many other liquid fuels can be reformed into hydrogen, but the process requires a considerably higher temperature and greater energy consumption than when using methanol.

According to GreenLab, Power-to-X (P2X) technologies whereby surplus intermittent renewable electricity such as from wind or solar PV can be transformed into other energy carriers or fuels and stored hold an enormous export potential for Denmark.
