The introduction of nuclear derived hydrogen is being explored for UK gas networks to help support key up-coming government policy decisions on the role of hydrogen in buildings and for heating, scheduled for 2026.
The National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) and DNV have partnered on the effort as they believe that nuclear derived hydrogen could help to drive production at gigawatt scale and help buildout a UK hydrogen gas network.
As part of the effort a pilot at the Advanced Nuclear Skills and Innovation Campus (ANSIC), located at NNL’s Preston Laboratory on the Springfield’s nuclear licensed site, will be carried out with support from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Under the pilot, NNL is running three hydrogen workshops, with the first commencing on November 30. It is hoped the workshop will develop a common understanding of nuclear derived hydrogen and advanced nuclear technologies (ANTs), with second and final workshops taking place in January and March (2022).
