[Members in The News] New Initiative Launched to Better Define Carbon Intensity for Hydrogen

February 16, 2022 11:20 AM | EMA Staff (Administrator)

WASHINGTONFeb. 16, 2022/PRNewswire/ -- GTI, the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and S&P Global Platts today launched the Open Hydrogen Initiative (OHI), a new collaboration to further transparency into the environmental impact of hydrogen production and help unlock its full potential as an important driver of energy transitions.

There is a high degree of variability in the carbon intensity of hydrogen production, even using the same technologies or pathways. Precise measurements of hydrogen's carbon intensity at the production facility (also known as the asset level) are needed to more accurately reflect the environmental bona fides of a given kilogram of hydrogen produced and overcome the limitations of the "color-wheel" labeling model. An apples-to-apples comparison of hydrogen production carbon intensity would hold benefits for stakeholders throughout the value chain—producers, users, engineers, academia, market participants, investors and policymakers.
