Hydrogen boilers are an exciting new technology which could revolutionise the way we heat our homes, helping to lower energy costs and decrease our carbon emissions.

Currently around 85% of homes are heated with polluting natural gas, of which the main by-product is carbon dioxide. Heating our homes this way accounts for around 14% of the UK's carbon emissions, according to the Committee on Climate Change, and this is a significant obstacle for the government, which is striving to make the UK net zero by 2050.
