Cumbria becomes home to cutting-edge hydrogen research
Research into ways hydrogen could be used to heat homes and deliver clean energy is set to be launched by National Grid, Northern Gas Networks and Fluxys Belgium.
The group will build a research and testing facility in Spadeadam, Cumbria, in partnership with Durham University and the University of Edinburgh.
Antony Green, project director for Hydrogen at National Grid said to BusinessGreen, “If we truly want to reach a net zero decarbonised future, we need to replace methane with green alternatives like hydrogen.”
“The importance of the gas networks to the UK's current energy supply means trial projects like this are crucial if we are to deliver low carbon energy, reliably and safely to all consumers.”
