Typical houses are nowadays equipped with high-tech homeware: rising demand for pieces of state-of-the-art home appliances reflects a speedy transformation in home amenities. Some still rely on non-renewable energy sources. There’s one question amidst this evolution: what will happen to the environment?
“Green Hydrogen” project will make it available to use hydrogen, generated from renewable resources, for cooking and heating purposes. Designed by Scotland, the project will supply carbon-free heating energy for some 300 houses.
In this sense, Boris Johnson, the UK’s Prime Minister, in November issued a Ten Point Plan for a “Green Industrial Revolution”, based on which the first town is supposed to be heated solely by hydrogen by 2030.
Office of Gas and Electricity Markets, Ofgem, will allocate £18 million to the project. Scotland, too, will invest £6.9 million in the scheme.
The EU, on its turn, intends to set up 40 GW electrolyzers to generate 10 million metric tons of renewable hydrogen by the year 2030.
With various applications, hydrogen is able to be used in industry sector and transportation.
