A window to the future: Hydrogen’s role in the award-winning ‘H2 Hydrogen Home Project’

Hydrogen has clearly been recognised as a key clean energy carrier that holds the potential to decarbonise multiple hard-to-abate sectors such as transportation, industrial processes and heating. One crucial and unique area of hydrogen’s role in the energy transition could be its role in reducing the carbon footprint of households and residential areas.

Many regard this aspect of hydrogen as potentially its most significant as it could help sway the wider public opinion to adopt hydrogen technologies. If the everyday person can seamlessly transition away from natural gas to hydrogen without any implications, then it could raise hydrogen’s profile and highlight the safe practice with its use.

If hydrogen is correctly introduced into residential buildings, its potential is almost limitless with what it can power. Heating, electrical appliances and even vehicle charging slots could all utilise hydrogen and fuel cells to create a decarbonised, off-grid island with a low carbon footprint.
