WS5 - Hydrogen transformation

GGG logo

Hydrogen is critical for delivering net zero, with all major new studies expecting it to have a significant role.

For several years the gas networks have been working together to evaluate and provide technical, safety, quality and financial evidence to demonstrate the viability of using the gas networks to transport and distribute 100% hydrogen through existing and new networks.

This workstream will take this work forward while also coordinating with other gas network projects and with government activity relating to hydrogen.

Gas Goes Green will coordinate all of the network activities relating to hydrogen including Hy4Heat and BEIS’ hydrogen programme.

Deliverable 5.1 - Hydrogen transformation plan

Transition of our existing assets to hydrogen is one of the most important parts of the decarbonisation challenge. Gas Goes Green will chart the hydrogen journey, setting out the state of the art network innovation projects, and the vision for how network and wider activity is building the evidence base for the role of hydrogen across the energy system. The plan will support the case for hydrogen as a means of achieving net zero.

The plan will be published in July.

Deliverable 5.2 - Collaboration and dissemination

Throughout 2020 the gas networks will disseminate the latest research and project findings relating to hydrogen.

Be sure to return to this page later in the year for further information about upcoming events.
