In April 2018, the FCH JU- funded CertifHy project will launch first Green Hydrogen Guarantees of Origin (GOs) that will be available for sale EU-wide. CertifHy GOs provide information of the source of the product to the customers and allow hydrogen users to track the origin of the product.


Four hydrogen producers including the industrial gas companies Air Liquide and Air Products, the chemical company Akzo Nobel, Air Products, the retailer Colruyt Group and the energy utility Uniper will have their production batches audited during this pilot. The corresponding GOs will be up for trade in April 2018.

EU-wide transferable GOs for renewable and low-carbon hydrogen create a new and transparent hydrogen market with a business case, enhance market pull and empower consumers. Do you want to be an early adopter?
