Hydrogen In Gas GridS: a systematic validation approach at various admixture levels into high-pressure grids

Project description

Hydrogen blending into gas networks to decarbonise the gas sector

The EU has set a binding target to cut emissions by 45 % below 1990 levels, by 2030. One of the related actions includes increasing the share of renewables in the energy consumption of EU Member States. Green hydrogen produced through renewable-powered electrolysis will be critical for integrating the difficult-to-decarbonise electricity and gas markets. This can be realised by delivering hydrogen through the existing natural gas pipeline network. The EU-funded HIGGS project aims to identify and bridge knowledge gaps on the impact of high amounts of hydrogen on the gas infrastructure and its components. To reach its aim, it will map technical, legal and regulatory barriers, help determine the economic viability of hydrogen injection into the gas grid, and test various technical solutions.
