Accelerating to Net Zero with Hydrogen Blending Standards Development in the UK, Canada and the US
Hydrogen is expected to play a critical role in the move to a net-zero economy. However, large-scale deployment is still in its infancy. Exciting pilot projects are being conducted and explored in the UK, Canada and US states such as California to determine the technical feasibility of blending hydrogen into existing natural gas systems. There is increasing interest around permitting significant percentage blends of hydrogen into gas networks, which would enable the carbon intensity of gas supplies to be reduced, create a new demand for hydrogen and, with the use of separation and purification technologies downstream, support the transportation of pure hydrogen to markets.
