Saxony-Anhalt, Germany will slowly see hydrogen introduced into its gas grid network this December (2021), as a result of a joint project being executed by E.ON subsidiary Avacon and the German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (DVGW).
Part of a wider effort to showcase the role hydrogen can play in decarbonising the gas grid, the project will see a section of a medium-pressure distribution network, with a pipeline of approximately 35-kilometers, transport hydrogen blends.
The section of pipeline, which supplies approximately 350 customers, will see the injection of hydrogen planned over the two heating periods of 2021/22 and 2022/23 in stages of 10%, 15% and 20% hydrogen admixture.
At the end of this year (2021), 10% hydrogen is expected to be added to the natural gas. A 15% blending phase is planned for the first quarter of 2022 and, after an evaluation period, the targeted 20% concentration blend will be executed.
