Steve Fraser, chief executive officer at Cadent, shares his initial reaction to the Prime Minister's ten point plan for our green recovery:

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s ambition for a Green Industrial Revolution, set out today in his 10 point plan.  These bold commitments will ensure that the UK is a leader in developing a cleaner, greener economy with the creation of jobs across the country.  We have long championed a whole-system approach to tackling climate change and are delighted to see hydrogen and carbon capture storage highlighted as key to decarbonising our economy.

"Our current trial demonstrating the delivery of hydrogen into the home will make a strong basis for the hydrogen neighbourhoods.  We will continue to work with the government and partners to support the plan and delivery of our country’s green ambitions.”



Cadent is the UK’s largest gas distribution network with a 200-year legacy.  We are in a unique position to build on strong foundations whilst encouraging the curiosity to think differently and the courage to embrace change.  Day to day we continue to operate, maintain and innovate the UK’s largest gas network, transporting gas safely and protecting people in an emergency.   Our skilled engineers and specialists remain committed to the communities we serve, working day and night to ensure gas reaches 11 million homes from Cumbria to North London and the Welsh Borders to East Anglia, to keep your energy flowing. 

Future of Gas: Here at Cadent we support the Government’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050. That means we’re backing the introduction of hydrogen as a low carbon alternative to natural gas for the future. We know people love the controllability of gas and, with our network already in place, it makes sense to switch to the lower carbon alternative offered by hydrogen, which we believe can keep homes and businesses warm for generations to come.
