The scope of this feasibility project is to establish the technical and commercial viability of a 100% Hydrogen network demonstration. The subsequent demonstration project will be to demonstrate that Hydrogen can be distributed safely and reliably.

The objectives of this feasibility study are to:

 

 - Evaluate the suitability of sites and requirements for a 100% Hydrogen demonstration project.

 - Select the most practical and cost effective site for development

 - Complete the initial design of the site.

 - Carry out on site or off site testing of aspects supporting the quantification of risk.

The project will be deemed to be successful if the following outcomes are achieved:

- Detailed evidence supporting selection of most suitable and cost effective site for Hydrogen demonstration project.

- Quantitative and qualitative risk assessment for 100% Hydrogen network

- Stimulation of Hydrogen supply chain

- Initial conceptual design of the site(s)

- Plans for future commercial viability

- Commercial and regulatory methodology for demonstration

- Cost definition for demonstration and CBA compared to other sites

- Roadmap to 100% Hydrogen network demonstration

- Detailed report for publication
