On Monday, February 25, Flexen’s CEO Berndt Schalin held a talk at the “How to Build a Smart and Flexible Energy System?” seminar arranged by World Energy Council Finland. Representatives of the industry, research institutes and authorities participated in the seminar. The main theme of the day was the roadmap for “Power-to-X”, that is, the production of synthetic sustainable fuels with renewable electricity. This technology is a prerequisite for being able to create an entire energy system that works on 100% renewables, and in the long run also particularly interesting for shipping and aviation.
