New platform optimizes the levelized cost of ehydrogen and efuels

Right now, there are more than 500 announced e-fuel projects in the world, but with a current Final Investment Decision (FID) passed rate of around only 5%, the number of projects expected to be realized is very low. Too many techno-economic parameters make FIDs risky. Last year, a new techno-economic modelling platform was introduced to the market to increase the rate of FID-passed projects and decrease the development cost. The platform takes 18 input parameters into consideration to determine the ideal system configuration for green fuel production with minimal levelized cost of fuel. The results enable decision makers to de-risk the project investment and develop the most technically and financially viable projects.
