A key issue in a transition to common use of relevant shares of hydrogen in natural gas supply is safe operation and reliable functioning of end-use appliances. The lifetime of these end-use appliances is considerable and so new gas appliances put on the market should ideally be compatible with these admixtures as soon as possible.

In the framework of its WP4 on standardization and certification the THyGA project team decided to organize a workshop with a number of invited experts in view of getting better insight into these existing initiatives and experiences and answers on a number of open questions.
On the 31st of March, the workshop brought together 32 standardisation experts and manufacturers to discuss and share information on the current certification and standardisation frameworks, in the EU and the USA. On the programme:
