The UK is ready to lead the way in reducing CO2 emissions with the world’s largest clean energy project.
The H21 North of England report sets out detailed plans on how hydrogen could be used as a way to deliver clean energy to millions of homes across the North of England.
It outlines how over 3.7 million homes and 40,000 businesses and industries in the north of England that are heated by natural gas could be converted to hydrogen by 2034. The project also proposes a six-phase UK rollout which could see a further 12 million homes across the rest of the country converted to hydrogen by 2050.
- World’s largest project to reduce carbon emissions
- UK-wide rollout to achieve 80% of remaining 2050 emissions reduction targets
- Potential for thousands of high-quality jobs and ability for UK to become global leader in hydrogen skills and technology
Dan Sadler, H21 Programme Director, Northern Gas Networks said:
“If rolled out UK-wide, this detailed engineering solution has the potential to decarbonise 70% of domestic heat by 2050, and represents a huge leap towards our country meeting the Climate Change challenge.
