A ‘world-first’ programme using green hydrogen to heat homes could be built in Scotland by SGN if proposals are approved by regulator Ofgem.  The H100 Fife project is intended to provide critical evidence for a potential zero-carbon energy source, helping to inform the UK’s long-term policy decisions for decarbonisation. H100 Fife has passed the initial screening submission process for Ofgem’s annual Network Innovation Competition, and a full bid for funding will be submitted this summer. If successful, SGN will build a 100% zero-carbon hydrogen network in Levenmouth, producing hydrogen via an electrolysis plant powered by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult’s nearby offshore wind turbine. The proposed hydrogen production and storage system and heating network will run alongside the current natural gas system, demonstrating every aspect of an end-to-end hydrogen-to-homes system to support plans for large scale roll-out in the future. Angus McIntosh, Director of Energy Futures at SGN said: ‘Hydrogen is an exciting … (To read the full article, subscribe below)
