Partners build facility to test hydrogen transmission
NATIONAL Grid is partnering with gas distribution companies, safety organisations, and academia, to build a first-of-its-kind offline hydrogen test facility in the UK. The facility is expected to help understand how hydrogen gas could be used in future to heat homes and deliver green energy to industry.
As part of the £10m (US$13.4m) FutureGrid project, the test facility will be built using a range of decommissioned assets to create a network that is representative of the National Transmission System (NTS). Hydrogen blends of up to 100% will be tested to help understand the impact of different concentrations on network operations and any potential impact on the assets.
