Study delivers a minimum purity standard for the future use of hydrogen in UK homes and businesses

A partnership led by DNV GL has investigated minimum purity levels in a study to examine the feasibility of hydrogen being used as a low carbon and safe energy source in the existing UK distribution network.

The UK consumed more than 7.6 billion cubic feet of gas in 2018, with 22 million homes connected to the nation’s gas grid.

As the British government works towards a target of net zero carbon emissions in 2050, it is increasing investment to better understand the potential effect of lower-carbon gases on the country’s gas infrastructure.

DNV GL was appointed to investigate hydrogen purity and flame colourisation as part of the Hy4Heat programme, commissioned by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to assess the feasibility of using hydrogen for heat in UK homes and businesses.
