The government’s new Energy White Paper has proposed a £240m net-zero Hydrogen Fund to help kick-start hydrogen heating, which could one day be used in our homes.

The Energy White Paper released on Monday pledges to aim for 5GW of hydrogen production capacity by 2030, which the Hydrogen Fund will support. The fund will provide £240m of investment up to 2024/25 to help the UK become net-zero by 2050.
