Utility providers take ‘first step’ to net zero fleets with hydrogen

Two gas distribution networks (GDNs) are exploring the possibility of using hydrogen to reduce their fleet’s carbon emissions in line with UK Government Net Zero 2050 targets.

Northern Gas Networks and Wales & West Utilities, supported by the EIC (formerly the Energy Innovation Centre), are working on an ambitious project with Cenex to identify the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure needed to meet their vehicle duty cycle and power demands.

This will promote the development of zero-emission vehicles across their respective networks as they work towards Net Zero greenhouse gas emission targets.

GDNs, including Northern Gas Networks and Wales & West Utilities, operate a wide range of vehicles with specific usage profiles and weight limitations, and have very high onboard energy demands due to the use of specialised equipment, and the need to provide power to hand tools in remote locations.
