The idea of having UK homes powered by hydrogen became quite vivid over a decade ago when the first hydrogen-powered home was opened in Lye, near Stourbridge in the West Midlands. Fast forward to today, the British government is proposing a green revolution to have UK homes powered by energy-efficient options. But to the surprise of many in the energy industry, the initiative didn’t include hydrogen. This begs the question: does the government see hydrogen as a solution to net-zero home heating?
The Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC) has written to the Prime Minister confirming they have reached agreement in principle with UK boiler manufacturers, that they will support any future UK Government legislation which mandates all new models of domestic boilers to be “hydrogen-ready” from 2025. This commitment is several years ahead of similar action being proposed within the EU.
The second AGROLA hydrogen filling station in Switzerland went into operation recently in Rothenburg (LU). At all AGROLA hydrogen filling stations, only green hydrogen is offered, which comes from 100 percent renewable energies.
