Accelerating Discovery for Sustainable Energy Solutions 

Innovating Materials for Power-to-X

CAPeX, The Pioneer Center for Accelerating P2X Materials Discovery, is a major, long-term research initiative dedicated to pioneering research aimed at advancing the field of Power-to-X. Within a transdisciplinary framework, CAPeX develops innovative methodologies, tools, and infrastructures essential for accelerating material discovery processes for the production of hydrogen, liquid fuels, and chemicals from renewable electricity.

Established in May 2023, the Pioneer Center secured 13 years of funding from the Danish National Research Foundation, Novo Nordisk Foundation, Carlsberg Foundation, Villum Foundation, Lundbeck Foundation, and Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

Operated through a collaborative effort between DTU, Aalborg University (AAU), and closely affiliated with University of Copenhagen, University of Southern Denmark, Arhus University, Stanford University, University of Toronto, and Utrecht University, the Pioneer Center aims to foster innovation and research excellence in the field of P2X.
