  • 30% of the UK’s natural gas could be replaced by hydrogen, cutting carbon emissions

    Swansea University Press Office , 11th Jun 2018

    Dr Charles Dunnill of the Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University said:
    “Up to 30% of the UK’s gas supply can be replaced with hydrogen, without needing to modify people’s appliances. As a low carbon domestic fuel, hydrogen-enriched natural gas can cut our greenhouse gas emissions, helping the UK meet its obligations under the 2016 Paris Climate Change Agreement. Hydrogen-enrichment can make a difference now, but it could also prove a valuable stepping-stone towards a future, pure hydrogen, zero carbon gas network.”
