Northern Gas Networks’ pioneering H21 Leeds City Gate project is making headlines across the globe.
The H21 project, which calls for the UK gas grid to be converted to hydrogen starting with the Leeds city region, made its Australian TV debut in February.
NGN’s Special Advisor Dan Sadler appeared on Sky News Australian’s Smart Money programme, discussing H21 in depth.
The H21 report finds that converting the UK gas grid to hydrogen will be a major step towards meeting the UK’s carbon reduction targets. Currently, over 30% of all UK carbon emissions come from domestic heating and cooking. A UK-wide conversion to hydrogen gas will reduce heat emissions by a minimum of 73% as well as supporting decarbonisation of transport and localised electrical generation.
The report was jointly launched last summer by NGN, Kiwa Gastec, Amec Foster Wheeler and Wales & West Utilities.
