A “Comprehensive and science-based terminology, classification, and taxonomy for hydrogen” was discussed at the 31st session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy, and it was unanimously agreed that the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) should be extended to hydrogen through the development of specifications for the application of UNFC to hydrogen.
In spite of the fact that greenhouse gas emissions are the primary criterion, additional economic and social factors must be taken into account. A thorough and comparable grid for evaluating these might be provided by applying the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to hydrogen.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFC) is an international standard for the conservation and wise use of the world’s mineral, petroleum, nuclear fuel, anthropogenic, renewable energy, geological storage, and groundwater resources. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFC) allows countries to manage their resource base holistically, assuring environmental, social, and economic viability.
