First-of-its-kind UK hydrogen trial gets the green light



A groundbreaking green energy trial that could help Britain dramatically cut its carbon emissions and open the door to a low-carbon hydrogen (H2) economy has been given the go ahead by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

In the first trail of its kind in the UK, the HyDeploy project will inject H2 into an existing natural gas network.

Backed by Ofgem’s Network Innovation Competition, the £7m project is being led by gas network Cadent, in partnership with Northern Gas Networks, Keele University and a consortium of technical experts.

In a year-long pilot, due to start next year, HyDeploy will blend up to 20% of H2 (by volume) with the normal gas supply in part of Keele University’s gas network. Customers will continue to use gas as they do today, without any changes needed to gas appliances or pipework.

Energy storage and clean fuel company ITM Power is supplying the electrolyser system. Construction is due to start at the end of this year...more: https://www.gasworld.com/hydrogen-trial-gets-the-green-light/2015831.article



H21 Leeds Citygate Project from Northern Gas Networks

Northern Gas Networks H21 Leeds Citygate Project: The H21 Leeds Citygas project is a study with the aim of determining the feasibility, from both a technical and economic viewpoint, of converting the existing natural gas network in Leeds, one of the largest UK cities, to 100% hydrogen.

2. It'll probably die a death like Obama's Solyndra bet.

3. No harm done in England, unlike Solyndra, who ran off with the money.

I'm sure the British government spends money into existence, just like the USA, right, Aquila?

Wait until they find out what gas will cost when the test project is over.
