• The future of gas

      The UK's gas networks have provided an affordable and secure
    way to heat our
    homes for many


    Gas is the fuel of choice for UK consumers, meeting the heating needs of almost 85% of homes. 

    The UK has committed to targets to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 and the gas networks will play a crucial role in an affordable and secure low carbon transition.

    We believe Gas has a role to play beyond 2050 and we are working hard to take the carbon element out of gas to demonstrate it has a long term future as part of a sustainable energy mix.

    By injecting environmentally friendly green gas into our network, we are helping the Government to meet its climate change targets.

    We can do this without installing new heating systems in people’s homes or new network infrastructure, saving money for consumers.

    A report prepared by KPMG for the Energy Networks Association (ENA) has shown the injection of green gas such as hydrogen into the grid offers significant cost savings compared to a move to alternative heating sources. The full report is available here.
