Firstgas Group has announced its timeline for decarbonising New Zealand’s natural gas network and transitioning from carbon-emitting gases – a plan that will allow New Zealand to meet its net-zero target, Newshub reports. The transition timeline is informed by the Firstgas Hydrogen Network Trial report, which was released on Monday. According to First Group, starting in 2030, hydrogen will be blended into the North Island’s natural gas network, with conversion to a 100 percent hydrogen grid in place by 2050. The plan also ensures Kiwis can continue to have their hot showers, cooking hobs and barbecues in a zero-carbon future.
