Cadent

We have awarded funding to four Cadent (formerly known as National Grid Gas Distribution) projects. You can find further information on the project and related documents under the publications and updates feed below.

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.
