‘Green gas will play a major role in decarbonising UK heat’ Parliament hears from EUA CEO

Green Gas will play a major role in decarbonising heat in the UK’ was the message delivered to Parliament by the Energy and Utilities Alliance, EUA’s CEO Mike Foster when he attended the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Energy Studies meeting, in Westminster on Tuesday 12th April.

Mr Foster said “The ‘green gas’ message was very well received. We all know that decarbonising heat is tricky, but necessary if we are to meet our climate change obligations, and gas has a critical role to play in the process.

 The gas grid currently delivers gas into the homes of over 85% of the UK population and there is little appetite to simply abandon gas and start again with a new system, not to mention the enormous costs involved. The Parliamentary group recognised this and acknowledged that decarbonising the gas flowing through the grid offers an obvious solution.

The group were fascinated by the progress made to date on biogas, bioSNG, and the very real potential offered by hydrogen captivated the audience.’

Mike Foster was joined by EUA member companies Worcester Bosch and National Grid.
