Remarkable transformation times mentioned as Germany looks at a Green hydrogen gas grid...'This would create a completely new energy network in Germany on the basis of the existing natural gas network, giving industries such as steel or chemicals the opportunity to become climate neutral," said the group's director Inga Posch. She said gas grid fees would only have to increase by less than one percent by 2031 to finance the project. The initial green gas grid would mainly serve to connect demand hot spots in the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony with projects to make green hydrogen using wind turbines in the North of the country.

The lobby group said the network covering 1200 kilometres would mainly consist of repurposed natural gas pipelines and could be built at the "justifiable cost" of 660 million euros.

So logistically, how would this work? Would gas still be available at the same time, or would hydrogen replace it in the pipelines? And would gas be completely shutoff within those pipelines while the transition was happening, or would there simply be second pipelines built along the same routes and taking advantage of the already built surrounding infrastructure?
