The European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACR) released a study today (July 16) exploring the two main options for transporting hydrogen over long distances through pipelines across Europe.
With the European Commission’s hydrogen strategy acknowledging the future need for transporting hydrogen over long distances, building hydrogen carrying pipelines or repurposing exiting natural gas pipelines hold the most potential.
ACER has reviewed more than 20 studies focusing on the technical and cost aspects of repurposing existing gas infrastructure to pure hydrogen with the results outlined in the summary paper.
The paper additionally offers a reflection on the technical and hydrogen market conditions that could trigger the repurposing of natural gas pipelines to pure hydrogen.
