Horsley’s support to the £30m hydrogen investment

Mark Horsley, CEO of Northern Gas Networks, the gas distributor for the North, has given his backing to the government’s £30 M investment in hydrogen demonstration projects contributing towards reaching Net Zero targets. 
Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) provides £30 M for two of the UK’s first hydrogen production plants as part of a larger £90 M pot to cut carbon emissions in industry and homes.
Hydrogen, when burned, creates heat without producing carbon dioxide, making it a realistic solution for decarbonization of heat.
Northern Gas Networks is leading the H21 project, a collaborative gas industry programme focused on the conversion of the UK gas network to safely carry 100% hydrogen.
It is also partnering Cadent and the Health & Safety Executive (Science Division) on HyDeploy, a ground-breaking energy pilot demonstrating that 20% vol. hydrogen can be safely blended into the existing network in order to reduce emissions, without changing customer appliances.
