HyDeploy is a ground-breaking green energy trial that began at Keele University, that could help Britain cut its carbon emissions and open the door to a low-carbon hydrogen economy.
In October 2019, we began live testing of a blend of fossil gas and hydrogen on part of the private gas network at Keele University campus. During the 18-month trial, 100 homes and 30 university buildings received the blended gas. his concluded in Spring 2021.
Laboratory testing was conducted on a range of gas appliances and extensive research on the effects of hydrogen blends on a variety of materials found in the gas network, and in any appliances in homes or businesses. The results of this confirmed that blended hydrogen up to 20% by volume does not interact negatively with existing materials used within infrastructure like network pipes or in homes or businesses such as boilers, hobs, cookers, or meters.
