As part of the REPowerEU plan to phase out Russian fossil fuels, the Commission has launched a consultation on two delegated acts clarifying EU rules applicable to renewable hydrogen under the 2018 Renewable Energy Directive. The first proposal, covering Renewable Fuels of Non- Biological origin, sets the criteria for products that fall into the “renewable hydrogen” category and can be used to meet the renewable energy targets for the transport sector.

The second proposal on the methodology for GHG savings puts forward a detailed scheme to calculate the life-cycle emissions of renewable hydrogen as well as recycled carbon fuels to meet the greenhouse gas emission reduction threshold set in the Renewable Energy Directive. The Commission invites all citizens and stakeholders to provide their comments by 17 June. After the consultation, the Commission will propose the final draft Delegated Acts to the European Parliament and the Council, who have two months to scrutinize the Commission’s proposals and either accept or reject the proposals, before the final adoption by the Commission.
