|Are there any simplified process for producing and storing a small quantity of hydrogen?|
|Specify the threshold|
|Specify the permitting requirements|
Specify the permitting process:
a - Competent authority
|b - Different steps|
|c - The costs|
|d - The duration of the process|
|Is it a barrier?||Yes|
|Type of Barrier||Structural barriers, Regulatory gap|
|Assessment||There’s no real simplified authorisation process for decentralised H2 production.
The impact is the length of process and non-uniformity of measures to be taken across municipalities to obtain permit, despite a given hydrogen production system. For small plants (<50 t H2 stored) the process can be smooth, depending on the municipality.
