Power-to-X: Optimizing X for a Sustainable Society
Power to X is discussed recently in many commercial and technical debates about our sustainable energy future. X can take different forms, being thermal, chemical, electrical, and even magnetic energy, among others. In this keynote, we will understand needs for use of various forms of X, analyzing the financial viability and technical feasibility of different concepts. We will then put it all in the perspective of the energy transition and our ambition as a society to become carbon neutral in the next couple of decades.

Renewable Energy Systems and Power-to-X
Decarbonization of major energy-consuming sectors is a top priority of the 2015 Paris Agreement and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate change 2023 report. This has significantly challenged today’s energy systems with the development of long-term sustainable energy production and storage. Perhaps one of the most promising strategies for addressing this challenge is the implementation of hydrogen and power-to-X solutions, in which renewables can be heavily utilized and new ways of storing and transporting this green energy can be followed. In this context, this focus topic tends to bring together experts in the field to exchange insights on possible challenges and roadmap to pave the way to a greener future. The industrial forum will focus on the applications and best practices for system coupling/integration, topologies, innovative technologies, system degradation, efficiency, and simulation from component to system levels.

Energy Islands
Europe has set ambitious goals to address energy security challenges by exploiting offshore wind energy. By 2050, at least 260 GW of offshore wind farms will be deployed in the North Sea, accounting for 85% of the EU’s current target of 300 GW. To facilitate the large-scale integration of offshore wind into future energy systems, Energy Islands are being constructed and commissioned by 2030. These islands will interconnect several GWs of new offshore wind farms with high-voltage transmission grids and use electrolyzers to convert offshore wind into renewable hydrogen. Power electronics is a foundational technology for Energy Islands. It enables not only efficient direct-current transmission of offshore wind power but also cost-effective production of hydrogen. Hence, power-electronic-based, sector-coupled energy systems will be built on Energy Islands. This Focus Topic aims to provide a venue for exchanging latest technologies and challenges in developing Energy Islands. The Focus Topic will consist of a series of tutorials, technical sessions, and an industrial forum for inspiring discussions.

Energy-storage technologies
Energy storage technologies (for example lithium-ion batteries, hydrogen, supercapacitors etc…) are key enablers of the transition to a greener society. Improvements in their performance behavior and their energy and power management when integrated into various applications (for example electric vehicles, grid storage, satellites, and so on…) are further required to meet the ever-increasing requirements of the users.
