The Role of Guarantees of Origin and Certificates for the Development of the Clean Hydrogen Industry


In Europe, guarantees of origin schemes already exist for renewable electricity, which is obligatory as per the current European Renewable Energy Directive and Member States are mandated to create a GO Scheme. In the revised version of the Directive, GO schemes will also be introduced for renewable gas and hydrogen. Moreover, regulatory targets are being set for an increasing number of sectors and further certification will be required for the actors to show compliance with the new set targets.

This panel constituted of representatives from the hydrogen industry (producers, users, certification schemes, traders) will explain what the benefits and challenges of a well-organized scheme are for guarantees of origin and certificates and how it will foster the development of a European clean hydrogen market.

Please note: This event will be hold in English only.
