The methodology is to assess overall hydrogen demand across the region under a ‘high hydrogen’ scenario,  recognising that this is unlikely to fully come to fruition before 2030. The ‘high hydrogen’ scenario will include industrial fuel switching, network blending, heavy transport and flexible power generation, but will exclude domestic conversion of existing properties.
The overarching objective of this work is to provide an assessment of the potential expansion opportunities for the HyNet project to provide wider decarbonisation benefits across the North West region. This objective will be delivered in the form of a report, setting out a range of practically achievable potential supply and demand scenarios, a cost benefit analysis of each in the form of carbon abatement cost assessments. The results of the work will be used to help secure Regional and Government stakeholder support.
