British gas distribution network Cadent Gas revealed that it intends to launch hydrogen into the North West England gas network, with the intention to revolutionize the energy system and decarbonize heat.

A study that was published describes how if hydrogen is added in large quantities to natural gas, it can heat houses and businesses across the North West area without additional appliances like boilers. It could also replace natural gas to power industry in the region.


The area uses nearly 11% of Britain’s gas and has offshore gas fields in Liverpool Bay that are nearing the end of their lifecycle. Cadent Gas believes that these fields could prolong their use as storage units for the carbon dioxide formed during the production of hydrogen.


The project has an estimated cost of £600 million, but it is expected to be lower and less risky from an environmental point of view.
