International Energy Agency - Global Hydrogen Review 2021 (PDF, 12.88 MB)
The Global Hydrogen Review is a new annual publication by the International Energy Agency to track progress in hydrogen production and demand, as well as in other critical areas such as policy, regulation, investments, innovation and infrastructure development.
Hydrogen Roadmap - Europe: A Sustainable Pathway for the European Energy Transition (PDF, 3.99 MB) (January 2019)
This report makes the case that achieving the energy transition in the EU will require hydrogen at large scale. Without it, the EU would miss its decarbonization objective. The fuel offers a versatile, clean, and flexible energy vector for this transition. While hydrogen is not the only decarbonization lever, it is an essential lever among a set of other technologies.
The German National Hydrogen Strategy (PDF, 1.31 MB) (June 2020)
In order for Germany to become GHG-neutral and meet its international obligations under the Paris Agreement, hydrogen needs to be established as a decarbonisation option. The Federal Government considers only hydrogen that has been produced using renewable energy (green hydrogen) to be sustainable in the long term. The Federal Government therefore seeks to use green hydrogen, promote its rapid market rollout and establish the necessary value chains. The Federal Government believes that both a global and European hydrogen market will emerge in the coming ten years.
IUCN Manual for the Creation of Blue Carbon Projects in Europe and the Mediterranean (PDF, 4.03 MB)(2021)
Nature-based solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation are gaining traction as a no-regrets option. Blue carbon is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. This manual arises from an interest in financing restoration and conservation efforts at European and Mediterranean levels through the sale of blue carbon offset credits. It intends to provide knowledge-based guidance for developing project-based interventions using the carbon finance mechanisms to improve seagrass and coastal wetland conditions for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Complementary to this, it can be used for other interventions such as addressing how to robustly quantify blue carbon stocks to identify gains and losses and inform national greenhouse gas inventories.
