Technical standards on Hydrogen technologies


Hydrogen is rapidly growing attention around the world as it can be used as a fuel, a feedstock, an energy carrier, and energy storage as well as many other possible applications across sectors such as industry, transport, power, and buildings. Most significantly it does not emit CO2 and almost zero air pollution when used and offers a concrete solution to decarbonize across the sectors where the reduction of carbon emission is urgent and hard to realize nowadays. In this context, this information session is intended to give an overview about technical standardization supporting the development of hydrogen technology including its usage, and its relation with European and national strategies.


  • Outline the concept of Hydrogen technologies and understand the related challenges
  • Get insights on European and Luxembourgish Hydrogen Strategies
  • Be aware of the ongoing standardization activities related to Hydrogen technologies
