Hydrogen Heating Trial Begins

Hydrogen could soon be used instead of traditional natural gas to heat homes in the UK.

The project commissioned by BEIS is being headlined by Arup and Kiwa Gastec, who will evaluate the use of zero carbon gas in a £25 million Hydrogen for Heat Programme.

Tests will initially look at converting a small housing area such as a village to gauge the feasibility of the proposals.

Included in the study is the design and manufacture of household and commercial appliances that can run to the same standard using hydrogen gas, as they would with the current gas system.

The aim of the project us to reduce the emission levels and carbon footprint caused by the burning of methane gas in the current gas system.

When burned for fuel, hydrogen produces only water and heat as a by-product and could have a significant impact on attempts to hit the targets set out in the Paris Agreement.

Claire Perry MP, Climate Change Minister stated: “Our Clean Growth Strategy sets out how we intend to reduce carbon emissions from homes across the country.”

“The £25 million Hydrogen for Heat Programme will provide important evidence on how we might convert heating and cooking systems to hydrogen, explore the feasibility of the transition from natural gas and crucially, the opinions of the people who could be using this zero-carbon fuel.”

This study is in addition to a prior study by Cadent which investigated the use of hydrogen in the gas networks of Manchester and Liverpool alongside the use of the current natural gas system.
