Avance Hydrogen Passport

The I-REC (HX) Product Code for Hydrogen

Independently verified, real-time, ex post record of attributes for hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives fuels and products across the supply chain.

The Impact of Hydrogen on World Energy


Hydrogen stands poised to make a significant impact on our low-carbon energy future.

By 2050, hydrogen has the potential to meet 12% of global energy demand and reduce 10% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. source: (International Renewable Energy Agency).

To ensure its seamless integration into the ongoing energy transition, establishing a globally recognized standard for hydrogen certification is of paramount importance.
