    REN has already invested 5 million to have 100% hydrogen in the network by the end of 2024

    September 28, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      REN - Redes Energéticas Nacionais announced this Thursday that it has so far invested five million euros to certify the country's natural gas transportation, storage and distribution infrastructures so that they can also include hydrogen. The investment was made as part of the Asset Compliance Program, within the framework of the H2REN Program, which began in 2022.

      According to the network operator, the aim is "to achieve this certification for injections of up to 10% hydrogen mixed with natural gas into the National Gas Transmission Network (RNTG) and Carriço Underground Storage (AS Carriço)". As for the Distribution Network operated by REN Portgás, the percentage of this renewable gas rises to 20%. REN wants to obtain certification by the end of this year.

      "By the end of 2024, the aim is to achieve certification [of the investment plan] to run 100% hydrogen on these infrastructures," the company said in a statement, adding that this "is another step towards incorporating renewable gases into the national gas network, particularly hydrogen which, unlike biomethane, requires additional adaptations to the infrastructures".

      REN also says that its Asset Compliance Program includes the investment plans submitted to the Directorate General for Energy and Geology (DGEG) and assessed by the Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE), which "aim to guarantee the quality and safety conditions necessary for the operation of the gas system with the incorporation of hydrogen".
