European Hydrogen Network takes shape: new rules agreed by future operators

Future Hydrogen Transmission Network Operators (HTNOs) agreed on draft rules required in order to establish the European Network of Network Operators of Hydrogen (ENNOH) in the course of 2025.

Addressing the meeting, EU Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson took the opportunity to underline the crucial importance that the Commission placed on ENNOH in terms of developing a European hydrogen infrastructure. She recalled that this association would be tasked with planning and managing the hydrogen infrastructure and developing market rules for its efficient operation.

“I believe that ENNOH will be critical in delivering our hydrogen targets,” said Commissioner Simson. “ENNOH will play a crucial role as it will focus exclusively on the development of hydrogen networks. It will focus on how to bring the hydrogen from production to consumption locations, thereby responding to the needs of the hydrogen market.”

While it will now be up to the Commission and the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) to evaluate these drafts – which cover the Articles of Association, Rules of Procedures and List of Members – the fact that the future HTNOs have been able to reach agreement on these elements bodes well for the remaining steps in the process and for future cooperation once ENNOH has been established.
