AEA Certification stakeholder consultation: DAREL Recommendations

AEA Certification stakeholder consultation: DAREL Recommendations

In May 2022, consulting firm DAREL presented its Ammonia Certification Report to AEA Members, with eight "Recommendations to AEA." These recommendations are now being assessed within Working Group 3 (Markets, Policies and Regulations). To support this process, we are inviting all participants in the AEA Certification Initiative to share your views through this survey, which will be reviewed within WG3. A report summarizing all input (aggregated and anonymized) will be shared with all AEA Certification Initiative participants.

DAREL Recommendations

Recommendation #1: Build upon existing scheme(s) instead of building a completely new scheme*
"To support and focus on key certification scheme developments like IPHE and CertifHY, in this further promoting extension of these schemes to cover ammonia plus international alignment and acceptance of those."
Recommendation #2: collaborate to align regional / sectoral schemes*
"To stay closely connected to individual certification schemes developed by ammonia producers for instance, to ensure and support alignment with international certification schemes while these mature."
Recommendation #3: promote certification before energy use*
"To stimulate countries who are focused on implementing ammonia and hydrogen application on a large scale on implementing a certification scheme as soon as practically possible, to avoid (short-term) higher emissions from grey ammonia production due to fast rising demand, also with an eye on increased import/export streams."
Recommendation #4: work with IPHE*
"To continue close cooperation with IPHE due to IPHE’s large, global influence, pragmatic approach to carbon footprint methodology development and input to ISO’s standard development initiative."
Recommendation #5: prioritize exporting countries*
"To catalyse global trade in renewable and low carbon ammonia by support exporting countries in adaption of certification schemes, in order to bring the supply and demand sides of the market together more quickly."
Recommendation #6: engage with European regulators / legislators*
"To engage with and actively advocate at EU/EC level to speed up development and implementation of regulations (RED II, RED III, Gas Package, Fit for 55 Package, CBAM, EU ETS), in this bringing clarity on definitions, certification and carbon footprint methodologies."
Recommendation #7: share lessons learned*
"To facilitate replication of learnings from HyXchange trading pilot in The Netherlands to other emerging markets globally."
Recommendation #8: support IMO initiatives*
"To support implementation of carbon emission reduction scheme in the maritime sector, by supporting IMO organization, and building on initiatives from Trafigura and Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller."
