The Role of Hydrogen in low temperature heating; the case of NW England and potential in the Netherlands

Huys Clingendael
11 December 2018
Contact Jabbe van Leeuwen and Kyle Ferriggi


The event will start with a presentation on the next step in what many know as 'The Leeds Project' by Henrik Solgaard Andersen. As part of the climate change agenda in the UK, the Leeds Project involves the switch from natural gas to hydrogen for low temperature heat, using existing gas networks. The developments in the project can hold important lessons for the Netherlands, a country with a deep natural gas network.
