Alexander Mahler works as an Advisor at the International PtX Hub Berlin. The International PtX Hub is implemented by GIZ and is funded by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Jointly with its partner countries and organisations, the PtX Hub aims to catalyse a global breakthrough in the adoption of sustainably produced synthetic Power to X (PtX) fuels and feedstock in sectors that cannot directly use renewable electricity. At the PtX Hub, Alexander mainly works on sustainable fuels for aviation and shipping.
Before joining the International PtX Hub and GIZ in 2019, Alexander was Deputy Managing Director and Head of Transport and Agriculture Policy at Green Budget Germany (GBG), a non-partisan economic think tank in Berlin. During his time at GBG he focused on economic instruments in environmental policy and advised governmental bodies, NGOs, foundations and political parties in Germany and Europe.
