Hydrogen gas has been identified as one of the key potential pathways for the UK to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The natural gas currently used by the 85% of homes connected to the gas grid, is responsible for up to 30% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Hydrogen produces no carbon when burned, making it a greener energy solution for heating and cooking.
Major boiler manufacturers have created prototype 100% hydrogen-burning boilers, the UK’s first homes with appliances fuelled entirely by hydrogen are being showcased, and more hydrogen-adoption projects are in the pipeline. Our expert panel discusses the latest updates and feasibility on the potential rollout of hydrogen heating systems, and what it means for installers.
