IRENA & Hydrogen Council to improve green hydrogen: The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) along with the Hydrogen Council, a global CEO coalition, has united to collectively progress green hydrogen throughout the energy system as well as be instrumental in net zero goals worldwide.
The Partnership Agreement indicates a new milestone in the history of partnership uniting the 2 organisations as well as integrates IRENA’s renewable energy knowledge and the Hydrogen Council’s varying network of over 120 member firms throughout the complete hydrogen value chain.
The partnership will swap insight, best practice and data specifically on cost & volumes for electrolysers, policy frameworks, market plan, certification systems as well as technical and safety measures.
Francesco La Camera, IRENA’s Director/General stated: “IRENA’s World Energy Transitions Outlook makes it clear that we have to urgently step up action on all fronts of the energy transition to achieve our climate & sustainable development goals.
“Green hydrogen is a critical pillar for decarbonising energy systems. With today’s agreement we will significantly increase knowledge exchange & international cooperation and co-ordinated action in this space.”
Daryl Wilson, Executive Director of the Hydrogen Council remarked: “We are united by a shared vision for hydrogen as the enabler for faster & greater integration of renewable capacity, as well as greater cost efficiency & optimisation at energy system level.
“The Council’s Hydrogen, Scaling Up report shows the key role of clean hydrogen produced through different low carbon pathways in delivering deep decarbonisation while providing the necessary flexibility & resilience for our energy systems. Public-private collaboration with partners such as IRENA is critical to making this profound transformation happen. We look forward to this next chapter of our partnership & accelerating the transition to net-zero together.”
