Hydrogen Task Force

At its thirty-first session (Geneva, 21-23 September 2022), the Committee on Sustainable Energy concluded that hydrogen could play a key role in building resilient energy systems and reaching carbon neutrality. The driving force of the Committee efforts on hydrogen will be the Task Force on Hydrogen, which will be a part of the Group of Experts on Gas,and will closely cooperate with the Group of Experts on Cleaner Electricity Systems, the Group of Experts on Renewable Energy, and the Expert Group on Resource Management.

The Task Force will catalyze dialogue on hydrogen, with emphasis on renewable and low-carbon hydrogen, at all levels of policymaking in the ECE region. The Taskforce will foster cooperation on hydrogen within the ECE region, and in collaboration with the Expert Group on Resource Management (EGRM), it will work towards a new taxonomy for hydrogen based on UNFC to go beyond a “color coding” approach.
