Replacing natural gas boilers with hydrogen gas may be the simplest solution to the nation’s heating problems. Hydrogen is a carbon-free fuel source and can fit into a current boiler’s physical space without much disruption.
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.
Hydrogen blend ready boilers vs. hydrogen ready boilers
Hydrogen blend ready refers to gas boilers that could run on 20% hydrogen and 80% natural gas. Our current boilers are hydrogen blend ready.
Hydrogen ready refers to gas boilers that could be easily modified to run on 100% hydrogen – these are currently being trialled at test sites across the UK.
