DNV GL delivers a minimum purity standard for the future use of hydrogen in UK homes and businesses

London, UK – 31 March 2020: A partnership, led by DNV GL, has investigated minimum purity levels in a study to examine the feasibility of hydrogen being used as a low carbon and safe energy source in the existing UK distribution network. The UK consumed more than 7.6 billion cubic feet of gas in 2018, with 22 million homes connected to the nation’s gas grid. As the British government works towards a target of net-zero carbon emissions in 2050, it is increasing investment to better understand the potential effect of lower-carbon gases on the country’s gas infrastructure.

NortH2 the green hydrogen project

A consortium of Gasunie, Groningen Seaports (GSP) and Shell Nederland expressed their intentions to build Europe’s largest green hydrogen project in which 3-4 gigawatt of offshore wind will be delivered in 2030 and the ambition continues to extend the project to 10 gigawatts around 2040. The green hydrogen would initially be produced in the Eemshaven-Groningen, and potentially later expand production offshore. Total production is estimated at 800.000 tonnes per year, which primarily will be delivered to industrial users in the Netherlands and further afield in northwest Europe.

Hydrogen Now! – The case for accelerating an energy transition
Hydrogen Now! – The case for accelerating an energy transition

Abundant and clean, hydrogen (H2) is the fuel of the future. It can be produced from a variety of resources, including fully renewable pathways, and used with zero emissions. We have everything needed today to make the switch from fossil fuels. However, the transition needs a kickstart, and this is why I call for Hydrogen Now! Greatly improving availability and access to low-cost hydrogen will have a profound impact, leaving us with a healthier and wealthier planet.
