Hydrogen blending: A balance of benefits

While the direct use of hydrogen in many of the applications discussed in this ‘Grid Balancing and Energy Security’ issue is often seen as the end goal, there has been growing excitement over the prospect of blending hydrogen with natural gas as an interim step to lower emissions in the shorter term.
