Transitioning to Hydrogen


The UK is investigating supplying hydrogen to homes and businesses instead of natural gas by “repurposing” the gas network. It presents a major engineering challenge which has never been done anywhere else in the world.
In a new report titled ‘Transitioning to hydrogen’, experts from a cross-professional engineering institution (PEI) working group, including the IET, have assessed the engineering risks and uncertainties and concluded there is no reason why repurposing the gas network to hydrogen cannot be achieved. But there are several engineering risks and uncertainties which need to be addressed.
