Sustainability Assessment of Harmonised Hydrogen Energy Systems: Guidelines for Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment and Prospective Benchmarking

Project description

Drafting guidelines for standardising fuel cell and hydrogen technologies

Hydrogen is an essential element in the transition to a low-carbon society. Besides technological advances in the field, life-cycle assessment analyses are crucial for evaluating the suitability of hydrogen technologies and supporting decision-making. These assessments should rely on well-defined guidelines. The goal of the EU-funded SH2E project is to draw up specific guidelines for environmental, life-cycle cost and social life-cycle assessment analyses for benchmarking fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. These guidelines could serve as a reference for standardising hydrogen technologies globally. A significant project output will be an open-source, user-friendly software tool with illustrative case studies.
