    What is hydrogen blending and why do we need it?


    As the UK works towards reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050, it’s important to take action as soon as possible, starting to decarbonise heating by replacing natural gas with a greener alternative. We believe the best option for this is hydrogen.

    In order to start introducing hydrogen into our networks, we need to show that it is a safe and viable option. In our HyDeploy demonstrations in Keele and Winlaton, we have shown that existing boilers and cooking appliances can run safely on a blend of up to 20% hydrogen with natural gas with no disruption to households at all. This project has also demonstrated that blended hydrogen can be used safely without any changes in industrial and commercial equipment too.

    The Prime Minister's Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution called for evidence for hydrogen blending into the gas network to be ready by 2023, and we are awaiting the Government’s decision on how and when this will happen. The sooner blending starts, the sooner there will be hydrogen readily available to help decarbonise our energy system.

    What are we doing?

    We’re involved in several hydrogen projects in partnerships with the energy sector.

    The three main areas we lead on are blending, industrial power and decarbonising heavy transport.
