Hydrogen for heat: Facilitating a ‘grid conversion’ hydrogen heating trial

Closed 28 Sep 2021

Opened 17 Aug 2021


The government’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution sets out the ambition to support industry to deliver a hydrogen neighbourhood trial, and a village trial by 2025.

This consultation seeks views on proposals to legislate in order to allow Gas Distribution Network Operators to effectively carry out the activities needed to deliver a grid conversion hydrogen trial, and potentially to enhance existing consumer protections to ensure that those living in the trial area  continue to receive fair treatment

The consultation will be of particular interest to Gas Distribution Network Operators; the gas value chain and gas industry; consumer rights organisations; regulators; local authorities; and housing rights organisations.
