Hydrogen boilers

A third of UK greenhouse gases come from domestic properties and it is quite clear that the UK will not meet its climate change targets without a change in home heating technology and fuel.

Replacing natural gas boilers with hydrogen gas may be the simplest solution to the nation’s heating problems. The only by-product of burning hydrogen gas is water, meaning that it is a carbon free fuel source and could be a key method to help decarbonise heating and hot water.

Carl Arntzen

Carl Arntzen, CEO, on UK’s hydrogen strategy.

“We are delighted to see the publication of the much awaited Hydrogen Strategy paperlike many in the heating industry, we have been waiting in anticipation for this strategy to be released, to give some valuable clarity and indication of the support for the future of hydrogen.

 “It is clear from today’s announcement that the trials and research in this area have helped open the route for a hydrogen future, to which we are excited to keep exploring. 

 “With that in mind, we are optimistic that we will see hydrogen-ready boilers, such as the one from Worcester Bosch, feature prominently in this Autumn’s Heat and Buildings Strategy particularly following the recent price-promise made by the four leading boiler manufacturers.

 “We will continue to work with industry and wider parties, as we further conduct trials into hydrogen heating and push for a positive Government decision in favour of the technology in 2026.”

Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps

A heat pump is a relatively new technology in the UK although they are widely used in Scandinavia and many parts of Europe where there is an abundance of renewably sourced electricity.

Hybrid Systems

Hybrid Systems

A hybrid heating and hot water system is a combination of two or more technologies generating heat to provide heating and hot water to the home or building.
