Project summary: The objective of this project was to investigate the feasibility of creating a green hydrogen demonstration hub at Rhode Green Energy Park, integrating energy from renewable electricity with the gas network. The project is part of the Just Transition, creating enterprise and employment in an area affected by closure of peat harvesting and combustion. Project partners were NODF (Community Company), SSE and BNM. The feasibility study created the blue print for a green hydrogen hub, which can be developed quickly at this strategic location. A hub will enable Gas Networks Ireland to gain the essential experience required in the development of hydrogen infrastructure, supply chains, technology, and safe integration into the grid. By advancing towards commercial scale hydrogen blending, the project demonstrated potential to reduce carbon in the gas grid, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve long-term viability of gas.
