Spain’s Acciona today (2nd Feb) said it has developed a platform based on blockchain technology that guarantees the renewable origin of green hydrogen.
GreenH2chain®,, which Acciona says is a world first, will also allow clients to verify the transportation and delivery process of this type of clean energy.
With the new tool, Acciona said its customers will be given access to a digital platform that will allow them to verify and visualise the entire green hydrogen value chain in real time and from anywhere in the world.
This technological solution will allow renewable hydrogen consumers to quantify, record and monitor the decarbonisation process of their own energy supply.
In addition, GreenH2chain® provides all the necessary information on hydrogen consumption itself as well as data for calculating the carbon dioxide emissions that consumers avoid by using this type of green energy.
In the future, Acciona said GreenH2chain® will be complementary to any official systems dedicated to certifying the renewable origin of hydrogen, once these are established.
The platform will offer its differential values to these schemes both at European level and in each country individually and will be implemented in the Power to Green Hydrogen project, designed to create a green ecosystem on the island of Mallorca.
Acciona said it will also use GreenH2chain® in all future renewable hydrogen generation projects.
