Northern Gas Networks

We have awarded funding for two Northern Gas Networks Gas Network Innovation Competition projects. You can find further information on the project and related documents under the publications and updates feed below.

City CNG – 2015

A project to  build the UK’s first scalable city-based compressed natural gas fuelling station for back to depot city based vehicles. It will use a novel charging arrangement to recover the costs of the high pressure connection over time, and provide a proof of concept business case to enable future private sector investment.

Low Carbon Gas Preheating - 2013

A project to test new and emerging pre-heating technologies and associated operating systems.
