Hydrogen key in low-carbon home heating – Cadent

Hydrogen boilers can easily replace gas boilers, while the UK gas distribution network has already seen necessary upgrades

Hydrogen will play a key part in heating UK homes in the future, according to a report by Cadent, the UK’s largest gas distribution network. Future low-carbon heating is likely to principally involve a mix of heat pumps and hydrogen. Generally, heat pumps have higher upfront installation costs but lower running costs, whereas hydrogen boilers will have upfront installation costs equivalent to those of gas boilers but are likely to be more expensive to run. This means that older homes may be better suited to run on hydrogen boilers because of high insulation costs. “Much of the investment needed to make the gas network ready to safely transport hydrogen has already been made” Cad
