The Danish Energy Agency is opening its solicitation of offers as part of its Power-to-X (PtX) state aid scheme for the production of PtX in Denmark
It is now possible to submit a bid in the solicitation of offers as part of a PtX subsidy scheme for the production of PtX in Denmark (the PtX Tender). As the contracting authority, DEA is tendering a total of 1.25 billion DKK worth of subsidies. The deadline for bidding is Friday, September 1, 2023.
On March 15, 2022, the government (Socialdemokratiet), Venstre, Socialistisk Folkeparti, Radikale Venstre, Enhedslisten, Det Konservative Folkeparti, Dansk Folkeparti, Liberal Alliance, and Alternativet entered into a political agreement on development and promotion of hydrogen and green fuels (the PtX Agreement).
The coalition agreed to tender 1.25 billion DKK worth of subsidies in support of production of PtX in Denmark. The PtX Tender is now entering into the tendering phase, and the Danish Energy Agency invites tenderers to submit their bids.
Five overarching measures relating to Power-to-X
The PtX Agreement introduces five overarching measures for the deployment of production and utilization of PtX in Denmark. The measures involve:
- Denmark to target 4-6 GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030.
- Dedicate 1.25 billion DKK to support of production of PtX in Denmark
- Enable direct lines, geographically differentiated tariffs, and local collective tariff structures.
- Enabling the build-out of infrastructure for hydrogen in Denmark.

The PtX Taskforce has been appointed, and the PtX Tender is now soliciting bids.
