Climate Change Mitigation

Metric and threshold:
Retrofit of gas transmission and distribution networks whose main purpose is the integration of hydrogen and other low-carbon gases is eligible: • Any gas transmission or distribution network activities which enable the network to increase the blend of hydrogen and/or other low carbon gasses in the gas system is eligible • The repair of existing gas pipelines for the reduction of methane leakage is eligible if the pipelines are hydrogen-ready and/or other low carbon gasses-ready. Retrofit of gas networks whose main purpose is the integration of captured CO2 is eligible, if the operation of the pipeline meets the criteria outlined for the transportation of captured CO2. Gas network expansion is not eligible.
