Strong public support for hydrogen to play a role in UK’s future energy mix, study finds

Cleaner hydrogen energy systems to heat homes across the UK would be supported by the public according to new research by Leeds Beckett University – but steps need to be taken to ensure customers aren’t left behind in green energy discussions.
