Hydrogen leads the way to Net Zero

10th Sep 2020


The Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA) today praised the Climate Assembly UK for “recognising the role of Hydrogen in the future of heating” in their response to the ‘Path to Net Zero’ report which observes that Hydrogen ‘Works with current infrastructure, is easy to transition to, widespread use could drive cost down and would result in a “really dramatic reduction in CO2 “’

Mike Foster, Chief Executive, EUA said: 

“The need to reduce our carbon emissions is a given, but we must remember that ultimately the consumer is at the centre of that journey. Being selective in our approach to low carbon heating will cost the consumer and the planet” 

“The Climate Assembly has recognised via their report, that ‘Green hydrogen would be the ideal solution’.  The gas grid, using biomethane or hydrogen can deliver low carbon heating.”

“The future plans for low carbon heating must reflect how people actually live in their homes. Gas boilers are affordable, convenient, and able to deliver on our carbon targets. Changing the type of gas in the grid to a low carbon version, such as biomethane or hydrogen, will deliver low carbon heating at a price consumers can afford.”

“The UK needs to preserve the environment for future generations and that means being creative and innovative in how we tackle climate change. Industry is already working to deliver solutions for hydrogen deployment now we need Government to act.”
