RP1.1-05 FutureNet: minimise the cost of connecting and managing renewable gas projects

Executive Summary

Gas networks are evolving from concentrated sources to distributed biomethane and hydrogen production across distribution networks and along transmission pipelines.

To enable and prepare for this future, industry must reset how the gas network is managed. Understanding the techno-economic aspects of distributed renewable gas injection into the network is an essential starting point, including identifying the requirements and potential for optimal capacity management to increase the level of renewable gas project connections.

This project aims to identify the current best practices to enable at scale renewable gas injection into gas networks.
