Hydrogen

Service overview

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, and it holds great promise as a source of clean, reliable energy. Researchers continue to develop new hydrogen-based approaches to energy generation, but a lack of storage, transportation, and other infrastructure elements has kept implementation costs higher than those associated with fossil fuels.

We help identify a truer measure of hydrogen-related costs by accounting for the low carbon emissions associated with hydrogen.

We believe that the true cost of hydrogen-based energy projects can only be assessed if their carbon savings are included in the equation. With more than two decades of experience with carbon pricing, we are ready to identify the hydrogen solutions that fit your projects and portfolio.

A truer view of hydrogen

When you add the value of carbon savings to your projects’ books, you can break even more quickly and make a stronger case for future investment. We help you reflect the true value of your projects with valorised carbon assets.

Carbon markets continue to proliferate, and it is crucial that you find one that supports your objectives. We offer a comprehensive and continually refreshed overview of the entire carbon-market field, from domestic ETS and international systems such as CDM, to voluntary carbon markets of various types.

Entering a carbon market can be difficult, starting with registering your project under the targeted carbon pricing model you choose. If your project represents a new technology or just a new approach, you may need to document its methodology, and your application will need to include provisions for monitoring, reporting, and validation. We have supported the successful issuance of more than 50 million carbon credits, and the documentation of dozens of new methodologies.

We will find the best offtake-contract partner for your situation, and will help you agree on a contract tailored to your needs.
