Recommendations on Certification of Renewable and Low-Carbon Hydrogen

Power-to-gas and power-to-liquid technologies are a key enabler of sector integration. The upcoming revision of the ‘Gas Package’ presents a unique opportunity for the EU to clarify the regulatory framework applicable to PtG and PtL facilities and to create a supportive environment for the development and deployment of these technologies. In this light EASE has prepared some key recommendations for the certification of hydrogen produced through power-to-gas.
