This publication documents the results achieved by participants of an IAEA coordinated research project (CRP) related to hydrogen production using nuclear energy. The IAEA, which previously developed the Hydrogen Economic Evaluation Programme (HEEP), which supports the analysis of various options for future hydrogen economies. HEEP is the first of its kind software and has been distributed freely to IAEA Member States. The CRP participants performed a generic benchmark analysis for various scenarios of hydrogen production and against other codes built on different platforms and models. The research report highlights various aspects of nuclear hydrogen production based not only on national but also international trends. It considers important technical aspects of coupling nuclear reactors to hydrogen plants and the challenges for nuclear hydrogen production compared with steam or solar energy produced hydrogen. Major accomplishments achieved by Member States are presented in the summary section of this report. A detailed description of the activities and outcomes through the implementation of the CRP can be found in the individual country reports available on the CD-ROM attached to this publication.
