Following the All Part Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hydrogen’s latest report, the UK has a clear opportunity to become one of the first nations to integrate hydrogen into the future energy mix, say Baxi Heating.
Jeff House, head of external affairs at Baxi Heating, explains: “While there is a consensus within the report that clean hydrogen will be an essential part of the future energy mix, a plethora of UK case studies used in the report, including the work Baxi Heating has been carrying out with its own prototype hydrogen boiler, as well as trial projects like HyDeploy and Hy4Heat, demonstrates that the UK is in a strong leadership position.”
House continues: “Although other nations are now setting out ambitious and coherent hydrogen deployment strategies, the report demonstrates the UK’s strength when it comes to current hydrogen research and development, in addition to its importance when encouraging a smooth transition to low-carbon hydrogen-based heating. The exemplary work going on in the UK at present sends a clear message that there is an opportunity for the UK to maintain leadership into the deployment of hydrogen as a future fuel.
“This is an exceptional position to be in and shows how with the right Government support, the UK will be able to be a frontrunner when it comes to accelerating the development of a hydrogen economy.”
