The UK workshop for the FCH-JU2 supported HyLaw project will identify the legal and regulatory barriers to the deployment of fuel cells and hydrogen applications. This workshop will be interactive, seeking to identify application related best practices and combine UK industry experience with regulatory and legal issues across the spectrum of hydrogen and fuel cell activities such as zoning, permitting and approvals, grid connections, and safety case assessment.
This HyLaw workshop will gather current UK experience on hydrogen production, storage and distribution; hydrogen fuelled vehicles and fuelling stations; electricity and gas grids; stationary power. It will also consider pathways to addressing or overcoming the potential legal barriers to wider deployment and scale-up of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, along with the work still to be done and priorities for the UK.
HyLaw will assist the market uptake of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies by providing market developers with a clear view of the applicable regulations whilst calling the attention of policy makers on barriers to be removed. The HyLaw project brings together 23 partners from across Europe. HyLaw is supported by Hydrogen London, SHFCA, and UKHFCA. Further information about HyLaw: https://hydrogeneurope.eu/hylaw
