The transition to a low-carbon economy will require the development of projects that deliver innovation and learning. Cadent, the UK’s biggest gas distribution network, has been developing the recent HyNet North West project which aims to convert industrial sites in the North West of England to hydrogen, which is zero-carbon at point of use. Cadent has today published details of this project along with a Frontier report assessing how HyNet North West could be funded.
