University of Glasgow – bringing hydrogen home

The University of Glasgow is carrying out ground-breaking research into the use of hydrogen for heating and household appliances. 80% of homes in the UK have gas central heating, generating up to a third of its greenhouse emissions. Hydrogen is now being considered as a green alternative. Academics are working to produce renewable hydrogen and low-carbon hydrogen-rich synthesis gas from biomass and waste. This research will tackle the challenges of combustion of these types of fuels for heating applications. This ties in with the UK Government’s Clean Growth Strategy for a low carbon future and the transition to hydrogen as a route to decarbonising heat.
