ZEP has responded to the consultation on the Inception Impact Assessment on Hydrogen and gas market decarbonisation package highlighting:

  • Acknowledgment of CO2 within the scope of the legislation is key to kick-start Europe-wide CO2 infrastructure.
  • With CO2 infrastructure put in place, volumes of low-carbon hydrogen from natural gas with CCS can be made available.
  • Thorough, scientific carbon accounting must be at the basis of any regulatory framework that will support the use of renewable and low-carbon gases – including low-carbon hydrogen produced with CCS.
