IRENA reports make recommendations for green hydrogen policy making and certification
Two reports 'Green hydrogen for industry: A guide to policy making', and 'Green Hydrogen Certification Brief' outline steps for a speedy transition from fossil fuels to renewables-based hydrogen
With its ability to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors like chemicals and steelmaking industries, green hydrogen is expected to be in high demand as countries are racing to achieve their net zero targets. However, the current green hydrogen market is at an infant stage and more needs to be done, especially from the policy makers’ side, to maximise green hydrogen’s impact in the decarbonising of the industrial sector and end-use sectors as a whole.
To drive concrete solutions and policy frameworks that can scale up green hydrogen use in industry and establish a credible market, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and IRENA Coalition for Action each released a new publication: Green hydrogen for industry: A guide to policy making and Green Hydrogen Certification Brief, respectively.
