DNV advances green hydrogen standards

DNV is launching a joint industry project (JIP), with 18 partners, to enhance the standardisation for electrolysers connected to renewable electricity sources to produce green hydrogen. - ReNews

Electrolysers are hydrogen producing devices, splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity in a chemical process known as electrolysis.

DNV predicts that hydrogen will move from approximately 1.9% of the mix of energy carriers in 2040 to 5.0% in 2050, a trend that DNV anticipates will continue into the second half of the century.

Especially decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors like aviation, maritime or long-haul trucking requires far greater scaling of green hydrogen.

Partners joining the JIP are BP, Clean Power Hydrogen, EDP, Elogen, Equinor, Frauenhofer-Gesellschaft, Green Hydrogen Systems, Industrie De Nora, ITM Linde Electrolysis, McPhy, NextChem, Nordex, Schaeffler Technologies, Shell, Siemens Gamesa, Siemens Energy, Sunfire and Thyssenkrupp Nucera.

We are tackling this challenge by joining forces with major industry partners to work towards a new certification scheme and industry best practice for electrolysers which will facilitate successful water electrolysis projects.

We undertook a similar approach for the wind energy industry about 30 years ago which proved to be very successful.

Now, we will take the learnings and implement these for the hydrogen technology on an accelerated path.

More than 18 partners from diverse industrial sectors spanning electrolyser and wind turbine manufacturers, renewables developers as well as energy, chemicals and engineering companies are joining DNV to develop a certification scheme applicable for electrolyser projects.

The scheme will include the interface with renewable energy as well as cover safety, performance and regulation.
