In this new 2-day residential course from the Florence School of Regulation, we provide an immersion in the legal and technical framework of the European hydrogen sector.
Over the two days of training, participants will be exposed to the full scope of European hydrogen policy, its political and strategic context, as well as the implications and opportunities it presents for projects.
The course is comprised of the following eight sessions:
Clean hydrogen has grown into an important focus of European energy policy in recent years, with ambition for total consumption increasing 500% from the Hydrogen Strategy of 2020, to the REPowerEU plans of 2022. Since then, clean hydrogen technologies have found a prominent place in key industrial policy documents, namely the Net-Zero Industry Act (NZIA) and Green Deal Industrial Plan (GDIP). These latest developments have further elevated the importance of the sector not only as a driver of decarbonisation and energy security, but also as a vector for industrial reinvigoration in Europe.
The confluence of this high level of ambition and a cross-sectoral scope has brought with it a complex and sophisticated legal and technical framework. Europe is leading the world on clean hydrogen legislation and is setting global benchmarks for some of the most central issues, such as a taxonomy of definitions on hydrogen origin. However, given the novelty of the sector, the rules, governance frameworks, and support mechanisms are all evolving very quickly, with several questions still open. 2024, will be an important year for the nascent clean hydrogen industry, as the Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market Package will be formally adopted, the first two rounds of the European Hydrogen Bank will be concluded, and hydrogen importers will begin having to submit reports on the embedded emissions of their product, as per the phase in of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).
Working with the complex legislative framework for hydrogen requires an understanding of the many interlinked pieces of policy and law.
