P2X pathway definitions has the aim to clarify terminologies that are often used but with different meanings or intentions which leads to misunderstanding and ambiguity. The Task Force Definitions have addressed this issue in the first chapter of this document, clarifying the terminologies adopted for the rest of the document. Once the hydrogen pathways from the production step to the application side are defined, the current hydrogen status is inspected. As numerous its energy applications are, hydrogen is mainly used today as a chemical component in industries like ammonia production and refineries. The energy related hydrogen pathways are currently mainly seen through demonstration projects. The Power to X demos around the world is reviewed and analysed within the framework of ST2. The results show that the investigated pathways are diversified with a recent trend towards hydrogen industrial applications attracting interest
