French gas networks release report looking at green hydrogen future

A report which looks at the technical and economic conditions required for the integration of hydrogen into gas network infrastructures has been released by gas infrastructure operators in France.

The report confirms the ability to integrate a significant volume of hydrogen into the gas mix by 2050 with limited infrastructure adoption costs, meaning gas infrastructures will soon be able to accommodate decarbonised and renewable hydrogen.

In short term, a volume of 6% hydrogen is feasible as a blend in most networks. It requires very few adaptions and is compatible with most of the installations of today’s gas consumers.

A pre-identification exercise aimed at injection project promotors will be launched in order to locate areas favourable to the injection of hydrogen as a blend.
