Presentation Title

Harmonising standards, removing barriers


The emergence of a hydrogen market needs to increase the public and policy stakeholders knowledge and acceptance. This may be achieved by intensifying the research on a better knowledge on all safety aspects, by continuing pre-normative research to ensure scientifically based standards and regulations and by leveraging the increasing demand of information and expectation from the society towards a carbon-neutral economy. Carbon content becomes therefore a pivotal parameter.
To give consumers a choice by disclosing the origin of energies, there is a demand for international standards to develop a comprehensive classification and certification framework which has to include information on sustainability as well as CO2 and other greenhouse-gas footprints across the whole life cycle as well as their production and transport modes and the overall fuel mix and to ensure traceability.
Several initiatives and international collaborations are on-going and will be presented.
