Tailoring the solution to the need

Interview with Christopher Papile, Senior Advisor to Proton Ventures

When it comes to discussing the most promising energy vectors for the future, the common theme is greenhouse gas minimization. But there should not be a one-size-fits-all approach: different applications require different energy solutions.

There are several important energy vectors moving forward, which we believe hold promise for the future, and should facilitate a greener, more flexible future for the EU energy system:

Green Ammonia as a fuel, particularly for ocean-going vessels. Ammonia or NH3 is easily transported
(as opposed to hydrogen), which means it can be produced in locations rich in solar and wind power and then sold elsewhere, particularly in areas where fuel costs are high. Proton Ventures is a leader in flexible ammonia production, including processes that do not co-emit any CO2; they term it NFUEL. And, of course, ammonia burns without carbon emissions and has flexible uses: chemical, energy
storage medium or fuel.

Decarbonization is imperative, and storage and digital technologies will further accelerate renewable use in a form that will include a higher share of decentralized systems. The EU is set to lead this global process by pushing for a climate neutral economy by 2050.
