In this new explainer video, our member Bernard van Dijk investigates if hydrogen is a viable decarbonisation solution as an aircraft fuel and debunks some commonly made statements on hydrogen for aircraft.
El hidrógeno azul se promociona a menudo como un combustible bajo en carbono para generar electricidad. Pero, según un nuevo informe, puede no ser mejor para el medioambiente que seguir utilizando gas natural fósil.
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.
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 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.
The UK’s long-awaited hydrogen strategy has set out the government’s plans for “a world-leading hydrogen economy”. On the face of it, this vision of a low-carbon future sounds like good news. But is it? And are there other options for delivering net zero that will be better for the public?
