Green hydrogen, produced via electrolysis from renewables, is commonly regarded as the ultimate destination, but blue hydrogen, produced from natural gas or coal with carbon capture and storage (CCS), will be key to scaling the hydrogen economy.
Indeed, the majority of energy professionals believe that both green and blue hydrogen need to work in synergy to scale the hydrogen economy successfully.
DNV has expertise across all aspects of production, transport, storage, and consumption of green hydrogen from renewable sources.
- Watch our webinar on a new joint industry project (JIP) launched by Frauenhofer Institut and DNV to develop a standard approach to ensuring reliable and cost-efficient electrolysers.
- Watch our webinar with experts from Nel Hydrogen and DNV, where we present the global hydrogen market overview; economics, key drivers and recent developments; as well some specific hydrogen use cases.

Blue hydrogen – Scaling carbon capture and storage
What does it take to produce low-carbon blue hydrogen? In our November 2021 research brief Blue Hydrogen in a Low-Carbon Energy Future, we explore the greenhouse gas footprint of different blue hydrogen processes and supply chains, and what it takes for blue hydrogen to meet thresholds as set by the taxonomies developed by the EU and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
DNV is experienced in gas reforming, gas conditioning, and gasification. Our Recommended Practices cover CO2 capture, transport, storage and safety.
Find out how DNV is enabling the commercialization of CCS value chains and delivering assurance to projects and stakeholders: ensuring the safety of CCS operations, maintaining the integrity of CCS infrastructure, and driving cost efficiencies.
