Building evidence to deliver hydrogen, 12 October

Neil will be joining other hydrogen thought leaders on a panel discussion examining how networks will build the evidence for hydrogen, looking at:

  • How network innovation is contributing to the evidence for the role of hydrogen in a net zero energy system
  • How much hydrogen can we safely blend into Britain’s gas networks? What are the next steps in developing the safety case for blending hydrogen?
  • Which refurbishments are required of our existing infrastructure to enable the safe transportation of 100% hydrogen?
  • What commercial framework considerations are needed to allow the transport of H2 in the gas networks?
