Stoke-On-Trent’s big step towards creating a better climate
THE city of Stoke-On-Trent will be making history as a first of its kind in the UK climate project was announced by HyDeploy.
The project “could pave the way to saving six million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions across the country every year.”
With climate change evidently taking a heavy toll, it seems that Stoke-On-Trent is doing its bit to potentially save the world.
The elaborate project, named HyDeploy, plans to help reduce UK CO2 emissions and reach the Government’s net zero target for 2050.
The trials are to start in autumn on the Keele university campus and will entail blending hydrogen with the Keele university private gas network.
‘HyDeploy’ trials at Keele university are of utmost importance as success would mean larger trials planned for 2020 in the North East and West of England would be given the go ahead.
The main aim of the project is to provide for the whole of the United Kingdom pending successes of the trials.
Keele had been chosen as the first trial sight for this ground-breaking experiment because of previous work on climate sustainability. This work included launching an institute for climate research in 2018.
Professor Chris Fogwill, the director of the Keele institute for sustainable futures, said: “HyDeploy demonstrates the sort of infrastructural changes required as a stepping stone to achieving the UK’s greenhouse gas reduction commitments and a more sustainable future.”
The trials will come as a big achievement for the city of Stoke-on-Trent as these trials would mean they would become a leading city in world efforts to cut down on carbon emissions.
HyDeploy is a hydrogen energy project which aims to take its place among other zero-carbon energy in offering a greener alternative to natural gas.
The trial comes as positive news to UK climate sustainability after a recent wave of protests about the future of the planet.
