Haffner Energy is co-signatory, alongside France Hydrogène and a broad coalition of industrial hydrogen users of a letter calling on the European Union to open an optional eligibility of low-carbon hydrogen to fulfill hydrogen targets for industry and transport, set in the recast Renewable Energy Directive.

Both renewable and low carbon hydrogen are needed to achieve the 2030 climate targets and a carbon neutrality in the European Union by 2050.

The coalition therefore calls on the European Union Council to adopt the November 23rd Czech Presidency’s compromise proposal (REV2) to the Hydrogen and Gas Directive 2021/0425 (COD), which adds an article 8a opening to Member States the optional “possibility to use low-carbon hydrogen and low-carbon fuels in decarbonization objectives”.

Haffner Energy is fully supporting this technology neutral approach, with a level-playing field strictly framed in terms of carbon content.
