Short Description

The project SH2E seeks to conduct a sustainability assessment of harmonized energy systems and to make fuel cells and hydrogen (FCH) systems effective on the in the path towards global sustainability. Robust guidelines for Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) of FCH systems are urgently needed to support decision making in a meaningful way. SH2E therefore aims to provide a harmonized (i.e., methodologically consistent) multidimensional framework for the LCSA and prospective benchmarking of FCH systems, from the development of FCH-LCA guidelines to FCH-LCC and SLCA guidelines, and finally to robust FCH-LCSA guidelines and tools.

SH2E project is an initiative of seven international experts who have come together to build the Guidelines for Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment and Prospective Benchmarking and coordinated by the Spanish IMDEA Energy Institute. It has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (now Clean Hydrogen Partnership) and receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program, Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.
