Gas Network Operators And Energy Suppliers Urge Government To Promote Hydrogen-Fueled Recovery

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Business Green.

This is the introductory paragraph.

In a letter to Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Siemens Energy, Engie, National Grid, and Ryse Hydrogen call for the government to emulate its successful approach to offshore wind development and set an official cost reduction target for green hydrogen.

I think they’re right.

There has also been lots of comment in recent days on The Times web site arguing for more hydrogen.

Points from the Business Green article include.

  • Develop a policy  for carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS), that was promised in its manifesto.
  • Carbon capture and storage would allow the production of zero-carbon blue hydrogen from natural gas.
  • The signatories have £900 million ready to invest in a zero-carbon gas grid in the UK.
  • Plans will be unveiled before the COP26 conference.
  • More emphasis by government on hydrogen buses and HGVs is needed.

The government and the gas industry must work together to deliver an economy, that is as near to zero-carbon as possible.

  1. The Oil and Gas Authority has just published its report on integrating renewables in the current continental shelf infrastructure. https://www.ogauthority.co.uk/news-publications/news/2020/offshore-energy-integration-can-deliver-30-of-uk-s-net-zero-target/ It’s clear that there’s huge potential here, so expect to see much more of this in future!
