Positive results from the UK’s first grid-injected hydrogen pilot
The UK’s first live pilot to inject zero carbon hydrogen into a gas network to heat homes is yielding positive results and shedding light, for the first time, on the views of those using the gas.

Renewable gases represent a great opportunity to deliver ‘green fuel’ for heating and transport in the UK.
Renewable gas is produced from waste and non-waste material, known as feedstocks. The gas is delivered to homes using the existing gas network and used by customers in the same way as natural gas.
As a low carbon transport alternative, renewable gases deliver significant emissions reductions compared to diesel.
As part of our wider efforts to support a low carbon energy future for the UK, Cadent commissioned an independent study to evaluate the potential of renewable gas out to 2050.
It reviews and updates estimates of renewable gas potential (converted from bioenergy) published in a 2011 report by the Committee on Climate Change. It considers all of the potential feedstocks, including waste and sustainable energy crops. Renewable gases take the form of biomethane from anaerobic digestion (AD) and Bio-Substitute Natural Gas (bioSNG).
The study looks at renewable gas potential based on current feedstock availability. It also explores how we could accelerate that potential by maximising available feedstocks.
We believe that with the right government policies in place, renewable gas can play a significant role to help the UK meet its carbon reduction targets; and contribute towards waste management.
