CertifHy - Designing the first EU-wide Green Hydrogen Guarantee of Origin for a new hydrogen market

Taking Europe-wide green and low carbon hydrogen Guarantees of Origin (GO) to the next level: from concept to implementation. This is the objective of the CertifHy project undertaken by a consortium led by HINICIO, composed of ECN, GREXEL, Ludwig Bölkow System Technik (LBST), and TÜV SÜD and financed by the FCH 2 JU.
Between 2014 and 2016, the CertifHy project brought together multiple stakeholders to develop a common European-wide definition of Green Hydrogen, develop a hydrogen GO scheme deployable across Europe and a roadmap for its implementation.
The project’s aim is to create the path forward for a concrete and actionable Guarantee of Origin (GO) scheme with a pilot demonstration of the hydrogen GO scheme and the creation of a Stakeholder Platform to give the scheme its legitimacy. The project will define the scheme’s governance, as well as its processes and procedures over the entire GO life cycle: from auditing hydrogen production plants, certification of Green or Low Carbon Hydrogen production batches, through issuing, trading to “usage” of GOs.

CertifHy Succeeds in Establishing the first EU-wide Guarantee of Origin for Green Hydrogen

The CertifHy Project, that is run by HINICIO, has finalized its work on developing a framework of the first EU-wide guarantees of origin (GO) for Green Hydrogen. At the CertifHy event on 19th October 2016 in Brussels the CertifHy consortium presented the project results and next steps to a large audience, consisting of leading industry, policy makers, industry associations and a standardization body. Additionally, speakers from a wide-range of international leading organizations such as European Commission, FCH JU (Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking), Hydrogen Europe, Air Liquide, BMW, Hydrogenics, Ekoenergy, Association of Issuing Bodies, Linde and Uniper looked at the topic from different point of views.
