Reducing Emissions from Natural Gas Leakage Is Crucial to Achieving Net Zero Targets

Project investigates the potential of using cutting-edge technology to give real-time and dynamic assessments of gas emissions

In collaboration with National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT) and SGN, Guidehouse is assisting Cadent, the largest gas distribution company, which brings gas to 11 million homes and businesses throughout Great Britain, in an eight-week project to combat the impact of gas network emissions.

Funding for the project has been awarded by Ofgem's Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF) to develop dynamic leak location and mitigation approaches, which will give real-time and holistic assessments of gas emissions.

The project will investigate the potential use of cutting-edge technology and data from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology, satellite imaging, and mobile emissions detectors on drones, among other novel technologies to enable more accurate operational and investment planning decisions. Using these technologies to gather data will ultimately deliver reduced environmental impact and keep customers safe, warm, while securing them savings on their bills.

Guidehouse will be leading the delivery of the technology assessment, conceptual digital leakage platform design, and business case assessment, as well as support for regulatory considerations, project management, and knowledge dissemination.

The Guidehouse team will work collaboratively with all partners throughout the project duration with the aim to deliver the best outcome for all.
