Update on EU Sustainability Criteria Certification for Green Hydrogen Projects

11. April 2023, Online

The Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC) in collaboration with the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF-SO) invites you to the upcoming virtual knowledge-sharing session agreed upon by the subworking group on Quality Infrastructure, Safety and Legal Framework of the Indo-German Green Hydrogen Task Force. 

Tuesday, 11 April 2023, 14:30 – 15:45 IST/ 11:00 – 12:15 CET : “Update on EU Sustainability Criteria Certification for Green Hydrogen Projects” 

This knowledge-sharing session will provide up-to-date insights on the emerging regulatory framework for the certification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission accounting and sustainability criteria of green hydrogen production and PtX products. Requirements around assessing GHG emission savings and sustainability criteria for the production of renewable hydrogen are at the heart of two delegated acts (DA) for the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) II, which the European Commission recently adopted, and which may be published in its current version in April 2023. Indian and German experts will share their views on the most important and latest sustainability features of the DAs and talk about how the required certification can be achieved and which standards already exist.
