The HIGGS Project
HIGGS project aims to pave the way to decarbonisation of the gas grid and its usage, by covering the gaps of knowledge of the impact that high levels of hydrogen could have on the gas infrastructure, its components and its management.
To reach this goal, several activities, including mapping of technical, legal and regulatory barriers and enablers, testing and validation of systems and innovation, techno-economic modelling and the preparation of a set of conclusions as a pathway towards enabling the injection of hydrogen in high-pressure gas grids, are developed in the project.

- HIGGS-Closing Conference during EU Hydrogen Week on November 21st 2023 in Brussels The HIGGS project aims to demonstrate that the safe injection of hydrogen into the EU high-pressure, transmission natural gas grid is a sustainable and long-term solution to decarbonise the energy system. Through systematic validation and testing, the project has identified key enablers and […]read more
