Decarbonisation knowledge centre

As the UK works towards its net zero target, the energy sector is a primary focus when it comes to decarbonisation.

It's a truly exciting juncture for the gas sector

With more biomethane plants connecting to the gas grid than ever before and groundbreaking hydrogen gas trials underway, our combined opportunity to make a difference is vast.

While exciting, we also know that there’s an awful lot going on within the energy industry at present - decarbonisation or otherwise - and if we’re to work efficiently, effectively and at minimal cost to consumers, collaboration is vital.

We've established a dedicated decarbonisation team at Xoserve, tasked with doing just that. Acting as an impartial partner across the industry, we’re in a unique position to share knowledge and bring industry thinking together as we embark on new territory - together.

Decarbonisation changes 

Keep up to date with all the Change Proposals relating to our decarbonisation activities below:

  • XRN 4900 – Biomethane Sites with Reduced Propane Injection – view
  • XRN 5298 – H100 Fife Project - Phase 1 (Initial Assessment) – view
  • XRN 5531 – Hydrogen Village Trial – view


Daily Biomethane Injections Report

The aggregated Daily Biomethane Injections Report was introduced by XRN 5183 to provide visibility of historical and current daily biomethane injection statistics.

This information informs future biomethane projects and helps increase the use of biomethane in the energy industry.

Ongoing projects

Whether they’re at consultation, planning or implementation phase, there are plenty of projects underway across the industry. Here are some of the important ones you might want to learn more about:





Hydrogen villages

H100 Fife

Guarantees of Origin (GoO)

Find out what hydrogen villages are and read our helpful material on the project.

H100 Fife is a groundbreaking neighbourhood trial to supply 300 homes with 100% hydrogen gas. 

National Gas Transmission's GoO scheme will enable firms to select their preferred type of hydrogen gas and hold certification to guarantee the source.
