BRAG are delighted to be helping to raise awareness for this fantastic new energy project coming to Levenmouth.
H100 Fife is a world-first project happening in Levenmouth. It has a crucial role in helping us move away from natural gas to hydrogen gas, which doesn’t produce any carbon when it burns. The project will help demonstrate the potential for heating homes with hydrogen gas throughout the UK.
The project is being run by SGN which manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses in Scotland and the south of England.
Green hydrogen will be produced using clean offshore wind power in Fife Energy Park – electricity from the power grid will be used when the wind isn’t blowing. This renewable gas will then be delivered through a new 100% hydrogen gas network, which SGN will install underground alongside their existing gas network.
Homes within the new network area in Buckhaven and Denbeath have the choice of using clean hydrogen gas until 2027 or remaining with their existing natural gas supply.
In the first phase, up to 300 participants will be able to sign up to receive a hydrogen gas supply. They’ll all get a new hydrogen boiler and new hydrogen appliances to replace their existing natural gas appliances. These will be supplied, installed, and maintained for the entire project duration free of charge.
Hydrogen gas heating systems, boilers and appliances don’t produce any carbon emissions but work just the same as their natural gas equivalents. So, if you live in the area on the map and would to opt-in, you can continue to enjoy the instant warmth and reliability of your gas supply with no change to how you use your energy.
Participants will pay the same for hydrogen gas as they would for natural gas and can opt out at any time during the project.
