Third phase to accelerate the implementation of proof of origin systems for hydrogen in Europe

Client: FCH JU
Region: Europe
Project Completion: January 2023

Once more, the LBST is part of the CertifHy consortium, which is developing a certificate of origin and a certification system for hydrogen in Europe.

The consortium consisting of HINICIO, the Association of Issuing Bodies (AIB), CEA, Grexel, Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik (LBST) and TÜV SÜD has again been selected by the FCH 2 JU to work on the third phase of the CertifHy project. This phase will extend over the next 3 years.

The continuation of the CertifHy project phase III aims to build on the two previous phases to implement a harmonized guarantee of origin system for hydrogen throughout Europe and beyond between 2014 and 2019, and to establish a market for hydrogen in close cooperation with the market players in the proof of origin trade. In addition, a certification system is to be developed for compliance with the obligations from the Renewable Energy Sources Directive (RED II) for renewable fuels in the transport sector.
