  • 39. Northern Gas Networks We are Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributor for the North of England. We keep 2.7 million homes and businesses cooking on gas, through our vast underground pipe network. We are committed to providing a safe, reliable and great value service to our customers and stakeholders, while developing new forms of energy, such as hydrogen, to support a greener future. Innovation underpins everything we do - whether we are replacing pipes, fixing leaks, developing low carbon energy solutions or supporting our most vulnerable customers.
  • 40. The Energy Systems Transition Strategic Innovation Fund Our innovation approach is designed to support the UK’s transition to a low carbon economy, by developing pioneering projects around hydrogen as a replacement fuel for natural gas. H21 - We’ve proven that the UK’s existing gas networks can be converted to transport hydrogen to homes and businesses – providing a clean and sustainable fuel for the future. We remain extremely active in this area, with a raft of new projects that are examining the fine detail of hydrogen conversion – covering everything from hydrogen storage and generation to the development of a domestic hydrogen detector/alarm. We are carrying out everyday gas network operations and procedures, with 100% hydrogen, to understand any changes that we might need to make to our day-to-day activities. Gas Goes Green (ENA) - Innovate, challenge, question, and assist with identifying potential risks, barriers mitigations and opportunities.
