HyDeploy is a pioneering energy trial to establish the potential for blending hydrogen, up to 20%, into the normal gas supply to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. It aims to be the first project in the UK to inject hydrogen into a natural gas network.
It will determine the level of hydrogen which could be used by gas consumers safely and with no changes to their behaviour or existing domestic appliances.
Subject to Health & Safety Executive approval, the aim is to run a year-long live trial of blended gas starting in 2019.
HyDeploy is being hosted at Keele University in Staffordshire. Click here if you live or work on the Keele campus, or would like to find out more about why Keele is the ideal place to host HyDeploy.
HyDeploy is funded by Ofgem’s Gas Network Innovation Competition, Cadent and Northern Gas Networks.
