WHAT IS CERTIFHY®
WHAT IS CERTIFHY ®
CertifHy® has developed high-quality hydrogen certification schemes across Europe, CertifHy® GOs, that will support hydrogen’s market growth as they are a reliable tool for consumers to track hydrogen’s origin and environmental attributes.
CertifHy® aims at facilitating the creation of an EU-wide system of GOs. Therefore, CertifHy® GOs are hold into a unique European central database, a Registry, that will manage the CertifHy® GOs’ life cycle for every account holder.
CertifHy® has been initiated at the request of the European Commission and is financed by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
CertifHy® is a consortium led by HINICIO and composed of GREXEL, Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik (LBST), AIB (Association of Issuing Bodies), CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) and TÜV SÜD.
OUR CERTIFICATION SCHEME
CertifHy® is currently developing an EU Voluntary Scheme for the certification of hydrogen as RFNBO (Renewable Fuel of Non-Biological Origin) according to the European Renewable Energy Directive.
RFNBOs will be the key driver for the development of the hydrogen market in the transport sector and in the industry, incentivized by regulatory targets and national legislations.
