Wood and SGN identify hydrogen’s role in helping Scotland meet its 2040 decarbonisation targets

Global engineering and consultancy company Wood has partnered with gas distribution network company SGN to create a decarbonisation roadmap for Scotland, highlighting the importance of hydrogen and carbon capture technologies.

The North East Network & Industrial Cluster development project will deliver a comprehensive and practical roadmap that enables existing and future gas networks to help meet national net-zero 2045 decarbonisation targets, and the ultimate goal of providing 100% hydrogen from renewable sources.

As part of the project, a multi-disciplinary team from across Wood’s global business will investigate re-purposing and further developing SGN’s existing distribution networks on the east coast and central belt of Scotland as a viable alternative to natural gas, using hydrogen and carbon capture and storage technologies.

Jo Sczurko, CEO of Wood’s Technical Consulting Solutions Business, said, “This study has the potential to play a significant role in decarbonising heavy industry in the region, and the work exemplified our focus and breadth of capability to drive the energy transition forward.”
