Future Of Gas II v2 banner

HSE's Future of Gas II conference and exhibition is taking place at the IET, Savoy Place, on 4th & 5th February 2019. The event will have three sessions covering Hydrogen Blending, 100% Hydrogen Distribution & Transmission and the Role of Hydrogen Gas Grids in the Wider Energy System, bringing together leaders from across industry. It will update on key projects addressing how this important component of the energy system will be used in the future.

Confirmed to date are:

Hydrogen Blends

  • Simon Fairman, (Director for Network Startegy and Safety, Cadent), Chris Manson-Whitton (Director Progressive Energy) and Andy Lewis (Innovation Project Manager at Cadent) will provide updates from the HyDeploy project and its recent exemption award, the recently OFGEM awarded HyDeploy 2 project which will take the work to the next level, and the innovative HyNet project.
  • Catherine Spriggs (HSE Senior Technical Project Manager) will present the work to underpin evidence base for the HyDeploy exemption to enable the injection 20% hydrogen into the UK gas grid at Keele University.
  • 100% Hydrogen Distribution
  • Keith Owens (NGN Head of Systems Development and Energy Strategy) will give an update on the H21 suite of projects to repurpose the existing distribution network.
  • Mark Wheeldon (SGN Hydrogen Program Manager) updating on the work from H100 project to develop a new all PE network.
  • Anthony Green (National Grid's Head of Network Engineering) will present National Grid's work to understand the delivery of hydrogen through the UK gas transmission system (NTS).


Role of Hydrogen Gas Grids in the wider energy system.

  • Thomas Jordan (Group Leader at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany) will give an international perspective on current hydrogen safety issues.
  • Stuart Hawksworth (Head of Centre for Energy & President IAHySafe, HSE) will present on safety of gas turbine operation for power generation using hydrogen rich fuels.
  • Steve Edwards (WWU Director of Regulation & Commercial & President of IGEM) will present on the findings from the OFGEM funded Project Freedom .
  • Stewart McEwan (Policy, Energy Division, HSE) will discuss the regulation and policy for future blended gas system drawing on experience from the recent HyDeploy exemption.

This conference will include panel sessions which will give you an ideal opportunity to participate in a relevant and lively debate with key stakeholders and experts.
