The government’s Hydrogen Strategy has been published with ministers aiming to power up to three million homes with hydrogen by 2030, and it has been warmly welcomed by industry experts. 

Currently around 85% of UK homes are heated with polluted natural gas, and hydrogen heating could play an important role in decarbonising our homes because the main by-product of burning hydrogen gas is water.
