|Is it a barrier?||Yes|
|Type of Barrier||Operational barrier, Regulatory gap|
|Assessment||There is no specific regulation for HRS Land Use in Land Use Plans.
When there is no precedent in HRS the approval time could be delayed. HRS are very differentiated between on–site and off–site H2 production. I case of on–site production it is considered as an industrial activity which must take place in industrial land. There no exception for small production or small storage. HRS with off-siite H2 production have to meet just with safety distances but no complex administrative process.
Small production quantities of H2 via on-site electrolysis should not be considered as industrial use. This limits should be clear and fixed nationwide to widespread hydrogen distributed generation.
