This is set to be a pivotal year in the UK net zero journey. We are expecting to soon see an Energy White Paper and, in November, the UK will host COP26 in Glasgow – giving us confirmation on the direction UK Government intends to take on tackling emissions.
BEIS (the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) recently awarded five hydrogen projects a share of £80m in development funds, which suggests it is listening – and agrees that we can’t reach net zero without hydrogen as a key energy vector.
On Monday, a new milestone in the hydrogen journey was reached with the launch of the Hydrogen Taskforce: a coalition of some of the UK’s leading organisations; Arup, Baxi, BOC Linde, BNP Paribas and Arval, BP, Cadent, DBD, ITM Power, Shell and Storengy.
As the UK’s biggest gas network, managing 80,000 miles of gas pipes, we know the UK needs hydrogen and other greener gases like biomethane. You aren’t going to reach net zero without it. That’s why we’re collaborating on lots of research and development in the UK hydrogen space, as well as leading projects like HyDeploy – the first injection of hydrogen into the modern gas grid in this country.
