IGH2A presents its activities through five structured work lines and processes. Working Groups (WGs) accelerate progress in specific ways with the overarching goal of increasing project development collaboration and FCH2 innovation. WGs should try to engage all relevant stakeholders, will be led by a co-lead, and manage their own project. Each WG will include a liaison from IGH2A.
WL1: PRODUCTION AND MANUFACTURING
WL2: STORAGE AND TRANSPORT AND DISTRIBUTION
WL3: MARKET DEVELOPMENT AT SCALE
WL5: TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER & SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT
Green hydrogen can be produced through combination of an installation for electric energy generation from renewable sources (solar, wind, etc.) and a module for hydrogen generation by electrolysis – that is, from water...Read More
Green hydrogen can be used to store, move, and deliver low carbon or carbon neutral energy to where it is needed. It can be transported as a gas by pipelines or in liquid form by ships, much like liquefied natural gas (LNG). It can be stored as a liquid, gas, or chemical compound such as ammonia...Read More
For the advance of technology and its placing on the market, the development of systems of standardization, regulation and approval is of vital importance, as well as determining the precise legal and regulatory aspects to ensure the correct operation and safety of the user of the technology. These will be the channels and the tools to define the appropriate regulations on the use of green hydrogen and its applications...Read More
Switching industrial processes to sustainable solutions is costly and technically challenging.
There are a wide range of applications where the use of green hydrogen is either growing or has the potential for significant future demand. Green hydrogen can be used as a feedstock or a replacement fuel in a number of industries, including petroleum refining, ammonia for fertilizer production, food and pharmaceutical production, metals and steel manufacturing, and in nearly all forms of transportation, including air, ship and rail. It also can also be converted to energy through engines, turbines, and fuel cells, or through hybrid approaches such as integrated combined cycle gasification and hydrogen turbines...Read More
Green Hydrogen Economy Transition Hub is an initiative aims to accelerate the development and deployment of green hydrogen technologies through its 6 themes research programs.Read More
