Kia Ora and Welcome!
 
We invite representatives from APEC member economies and experts to share their views about a globally recognised low-carbon hydrogen international standard.
 
The APEC region accounts for around 60 percent of world energy demand. Low-carbon hydrogen, along with other initiatives, can contribute to lowering emissions from energy in the region.

Low-carbon hydrogen generally describes hydrogen produced by methods that emit relatively low levels of greenhouse gases (CO2 and others). Internationally, the terminology for classifying hydrogen based on its production method varies. The benefits of a low-carbon hydrogen international standard which suits the APEC context, include supporting emission reduction commitments, economic development and trade. 
 
The following survey covers the scope of an international standard, approaches to developing the international standard and options for certifying the low-carbon credentials of hydrogen products.
 
The survey is part of an APEC funded, New Zealand-led project SCSC 05 2020 – Low-Carbon Hydrogen International Standard. The project is being delivered through the APEC Sub Committee on Standards and Conformance (SCSC) in collaboration with the APEC Energy Working Group (EWG). It aligns with a number of APEC harmonization and energy priorities.
 
More information about the project is on the APEC website at: APEC Projects 
 
On behalf of the New Zealand project team at the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, we look forward to your participation.
