Low Carbon gas examined at EUA forum

4th Dec 2018


Hydrogen for a low carbon future is the focus at an influential industry event taking place today 4th December 2018, at The Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA).

Exclusive to members of the leading trade association, the ‘Low Carbon Gas Consultative Forum’ provides an opportunity for the industry to engage with stakeholders across heating and energy, discussing current and future developments, facilitating a unified and co-ordinated approach to a low carbon future.

 Mike Foster, Chief Executive, EUA said:

 “Following on from the success of our inaugural meeting in February, EUA are pleased to be hosting today’s event.

 There are a number of projects being undertaken across the industry all aimed at reducing the carbon emissions of gas – from biomethane injection to full scale hydrogen conversion. Our members are leading the way through innovation, and recognition that in order to decarbonise heat affordably and without the need for homeowners to change their heating systems, the UK must green the gas in the grid, using so called green gases such as Hydrogen.”

Members will today hear from a number of influential speakers including;

SGN- Hydrogen 100 Project - an overview of the innovative H100 project that aims to build a hydrogen demonstration network.

Swansea University will give a general overview of their hydrogen projects including Electrolysers, H2 microgrids, Burners, H2 enrichment of natural gas, RICE project - Industrial Energy to Hydrogen with Tata Steel, and the Hydrogen Bike project.

Cadent – HyNet, a conceptual study to develop a practical and economic framework to introduce hydrogen into the gas network in the Liverpool-Manchester area. And, HyDeploy – an update of progress on the project at Keele University to trial up to 20% of hydrogen in the gas main.

Birmingham University will also be presenting on Hydrogen and Solid Oxide Fuel Cells.
