Networks call for £900m investment in green gas

The five gas network operators in Great Britain have put forward joint plans to “lay the foundations for the world’s first zero carbon gas grid”. The companies have urged the government to give its support to the proposals as part of its economic response to the coronavirus crisis. Research from the Energy Networks Association claims the £182 billion of investment required to decarbonise gas networks could be paid back through benefits to consumers by 2045 and go on to deliver £89 billion of additional benefits by the middle of the century.
