GERG joined experts from throughout Europe in this working group on hydrogen led by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
The aim was to bring the scientific knowhow on hydrogen energy systems, gathered by GERG and others, together in a roadmap for standardisation.
The scope of the working group covered the production of hydrogen through electrolysis as well as its transportation, distribution and use in pure form or as a natural gas dominant mixture (H2NG).
Key outcomes can be found in Part 1 of the report (see below). The report also includes: Priority challenges identified for the various technical areas; recommendations on proposed actions with means of implementation; and visual representation of these actions in an action roadmap.
