National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT) owns, manages and operates the national transmission network in Great Britain. The Gas Transmission Innovation Team identifies opportunities to make sustained improvements in the way they manage the network and deliver a safe and reliable gas network. Collaborating with other Zero2050 partners, the Innovation Team are focusing on the analysis needed for the future requirements of the National Transmission System in South Wales.
NGGT’s Innovation Team will work closely with other initiative partners to explore the potential demand for low carbon gases in a net zero South Wales, including the potential hydrogen demand from domestic heat in cities, industry, power generation and transport. They will also appraise potential hydrogen production methods, analysing the need for a hydrogen transportation network and how much of this could be provided by the current gas networks, as well as exploring a potential carbon gathering network to enable a net-zero South Wales by 2050.
