We have awarded funding to six Cadent projects. You can find further information on the project and related documents under the publications and updates feed below.
HyDeploy2 - 2018
This project aims to enable the deployment of hydrogen blended with natural gas in Great Britain’s gas distribution network. The project aims to develop the evidence base for transporting blended hydrogen through trials on two public gas networks, and to enable the deployment of hydrogen blended with natural gas in Great Britain’s gas distribution network. It will also develop a full deployment plan for hydrogen blending on the gas network based on these trials.
H21 - 2017
The project will provide quantified safety based evidence to confirm the gas distribution networks of Great Britain are suitable to transport 100% hydrogen. The evidence produced will be used to support the case for a GB hydrogen conversion.
Future Billing Methodology - 2016
Great Britain has relied predominantly on North Sea gas since the 1970s with regulations and the billing regime designed for this stable and reliable source of gas. The supply market is changing with more gases of differing qualities, such as biomethane, being injected into the network. The current billing methodology isn’t optimised to cater for significantly different quality gases. This project will develop options that may lead to new gas billing methodologies to better reflect the world of more varied gas qualities.
HyDeploy - 2016
The project will demonstrate on Keele University's private network that natural gas containing levels of hydrogen (10% to 20%) beyond those permitted by the current safety standards (0.1%) can be distributed and utilised safely. The project will provide evidence to contribute towards the case for allowing increased use of hydrogen on the network.
Commercial BioSNG Demonstration Plant - 2015
Developing a commercially viable facility that can process waste, covert it to synthetic biogas and distribute it through the existing gas network to consumers.
BioSNG Demonstration Plant - 2013
A project to build a demonstration plant testing the techno-economic feasibility of the thermal gasification of waste to produce pipeline quality renewable gas.
