EU published the Renewable Energy Directive II (REDII) in 2018, which provided the framework for the use of renewable transport fuels during the period 2021-2030. In this II directive, the overall EU target for Renewable Energy Sources consumption was 32% by 2030. However, by 14th September 2022, the Parliament revised this target to 45% by 2030 and upward revised sectoral targets when compared to the European Commission proposal. The additionality requirements to produce renewable fuels of non-biological origin (RFNBOs) such as renewable hydrogen can be found in Article 27(3) of the REDII. The targets for renewable fuels such as green hydrogen and green ammonia are now set at 5.7% of all fuels by 2030, including 1.2% in maritime fuels.

Hydrogen Europe in the European association known for promoting Hydrogen as an enabler of Zero Emission society urged that implementing the stringent ‘Additionality requirement’ could potentially hold back the development of Green Hydrogen. Now Parliament has passed the Amendment, scrapping the much-disputed Delegated Act which would have imposed EU-wide additionality regulations. Though European commission can no longer impose the ‘additionality requirement’ member states could still choose to enforce them.
