Hydrogen Gas Injection into the Natural Gas Grid Has Begun in the U.K.
With a national goal of being net-zero carbon by 2050, the U.K. must find a way of decarbonizing residential and industrial heating loads. One possibility is to utilize the current natural gas network to instead deliver green hydrogen or a mix of green hydrogen and natural gas.
Can Europe Find a Role for Gas in a Net-Zero Carbon Energy System?
A European project called H21 North of England proposes a “deep decarbonization” of several energy sectors including space heating, transportation, and power generation. If it is successful and its cities can indeed convert their natural gas systems to hydrogen, the current gas infrastructure will be indispensable.
