More and more people are hearing and talking about the role that hydrogen has to play in reducing our carbon emissions. And that's why today we've launched our new 'Tomorrow's Heat, Today's Opportunity' hub.
The hub uses interactive content to set out the key facts, stats and information about the look and feel of hydrogen in our homes, how gas network innovation projects are addressing the engineering challenges and opportunities associated with it and what the wider benefits will be for our communities and industry, as the UK looks to build its first 'hydrogen town'.
It forms just part of a programme of activity we'll be running this year, which also includes a series of webinars on key subjects and the opportunity to quiz some of the industry's leading hydrogen, biomethane and electricity experts on all of this work.
And of course, we'll be sharing our Gas Goes Green programme deliverables as we publish them, setting out how we're progressing to deliver the world's first zero-carbon gas grid and, most importantly, what that will mean for our homes, businesses and communities as Britain's net zero revolution accelerates.
About Energy Networks Association
Energy Networks Association (ENA) is the industry body representing the companies which operate the electricity wires, gas pipes and energy system in the UK and Ireland.
ENA helps its members meet the challenge of delivering electricity and gas to communities across the UK and Ireland safely, sustainably and reliably.
Its members include every major electricity and gas network operator in the UK and Ireland, independent operators, National Grid ESO which operates the electricity system in Great Britain and National Grid Gas which operates the gas system in Great Britain. Its affiliate membership also includes companies with an interest in energy, including Heathrow Airport and Network Rail.
What are energy network operators?
Energy network operators manage and maintain the wires, pipes and other infrastructure which delivers electricity and gas to your home, business and community. They are private companies which are regulated by Ofgem and employ around 45,000 people in the UK and Ireland. They are represented by their industry body, Energy Networks Association (that's us).
Energy supplier or network operator? Energy network operators are entirely separate to your energy supplier, which is the company that bills you for using electricity and gas. Energy suppliers and generators are represented by Energy UK.
