The EU Commission wants to set rules for “green” hydrogen

Hydrogen from renewable electricity should only be considered climate-friendly in the EU subject to certain conditions. For example, “green” hydrogen can only be generated from renewable electricity that comes from relatively new plants.

According to Economics Minister Robert Habeck, Germany obtains hydrogen from the United Arab Emirates. Meanwhile, the EU is considering “green” hydrogen. (archive image).

This emerges from a draft of the EU Commission for new rules. At the same time, the electricity for the production of the climate-friendly fuel should come from plants that are nearby. However, these conditions will only fully apply from 2028.

The criteria for “green” hydrogen are controversial. Basically, the fuel is considered climate-friendly if it was produced from electricity from renewable sources such as sun or wind – but the devil is in the detail.
