Hydrogen for heating? A comparison with heat pumps (Part 2)

This two-part article covers the most frequently proposed ways to heat buildings in a low-carbon future. In Part 1 the focus was comparing energy efficiency and carbon emissions. Here, Part 2 continues by looking at technology readiness and infrastructure requirements.

Hydrogen for heating? A comparison with heat pumps (Part 1)

The two most frequently proposed ways to heat buildings in a low-carbon future in the UK are: hydrogen to power hot water boilers, or electricity to power heat pumps. Hydrogen is being suggested in two low-carbon forms, known as ‘green’ and ‘blue’.

Hydrogen for aircraft – number crunching the solution, or the hoax

Hydrogen is often claimed as a solution for hard to decarbonise sectors like as aviation. But is it really feasible to decarbonise the aviation sector with hydrogen? To really unpick this, let’s crunch some numbers.

Blue hydrogen – what is it, and should it replace natural gas?

Blue hydrogen is often touted as a low-carbon fuel for generating electricity. But according to a new report it may be no better for the climate than continuing to use fossil natural gas.
