CertifHy enters into phase 3 to build a H2 GO market

In October 2020, a Consortium constituted of HINICIO, Association of Issuing Bodies (AIB), Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA), Grexel, Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik (LBST) and TÜV SÜD was appointed by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) to lead CertifHy phase III, which will run over 3 years.

In this 3rd phase, CertifHy 3 will be using its previous work as a pre-normative research to assist the AIB in the development of a scheme for renewable hydrogen in its newly established Gas Scheme Group (GSG), facilitating the future of cross border GOs trades. In parallel, the CertifHy Consortium will be promoting its renewed Stakeholder Platform through 5 different Working Groups (WGs) in which the Consortium will keep on establishing rules on the different allocation methods for renewable and non-renewable energy inputs and GHG, but also defining other uses of GOs (e.g. linked to ETS) and their market, the certification of downstream markets (e.g. Power-to-liquids) and more topics related to new Hydrogen Production Pathways.
