In focus: Transitioning the UK’s gas networks to hydrogen

A range of innovation projects are underway in the UK working on how to transition the country’s gas networks from delivering natural gas to hydrogen, so homes and businesses can continue to receive the energy they need safely and securely.

Led by the UK’s five gas network operators – Cadent, National Grid, Northern Gas Networks, SGN and Wales & West Utilities, these projects range from testing blending up to 20% of hydrogen into the existing gas grid to how we will transport 100% renewable hydrogen from offshore wind turbines all the way to people’s living rooms.

A major new blueprint plotting the course to deliver the UK’s hydrogen objectives outlined in Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution was unveiled by Energy Networks Association’s Gas Goes Green programme in January.

Britain’s Hydrogen Network Plan sets out the work the five gas network operators will undertake to meet these goals including ensure the gas transmission network is ready by 2023 to blend up to 20% hydrogen and to help the UK meet its hydrogen production target of 1GW by 2025 and 5GW by 2030.
