The project will demonstrate that natural gas containing levels of
hydrogen beyond those in the GS(M)R specification can be
distributed and utilised safely & efficiently for the first time in a
section of the UK distribution network. Successful demonstration
has the potential to facilitate 29TWh pa of decarbonised heat in the
GB, and more by unlocking extensive hydrogen use.
The UK has committed to substantial carbon savings; heat
contributes to a third of its current emissions. Reducing heating
carbon intensity via hydrogen over the gas grid provides a
customer-focused solution, but is limited by the current tight
GS(M)R UK limits.
The project provides a body of practical, referenceable data which
is an essential pre-requisite to enable wider deployment of
hydrogen and therefore delivery of cost-effective, non-disruptive
carbon savings to the customer.
