Gas infrastructure can help hydrogen scale up—WHS

National gas networks can blend in hydrogen to reduce emissions and help build the hydrogen economy

The use of hydrogen as a fuel can be scaled up using existing natural gas infrastructure until it is widespread enough to merit separate or newly built networks, according to experts speaking at the World Hydrogen Summit today. Gas pipelines are already being tested for their ability to carry hydrogen safely. In the Netherlands, a 10km stretch of gas pipeline has been successful carrying a blend of hydrogen as part of a demonstration project. “Blending allows production to scale up” Green, National Grid Meanwhile, the UK hopes to use its natural gas infrastructure to carry hydrogen. However, it will run extensive tests first as part of its Future Grid project, according to Ant
