UK set for first hydrogen homes

UK set for first hydrogen homes image

The UK’s first homes with appliances fuelled entirely by hydrogen will be built in Gateshead this April.

The two semi-detached houses will use 100% hydrogen appliances such as boilers, hobs, cookers and fires that release no carbon emissions.

The project has been funded by a £250,000 grant from the Government’s Hy4Heat Innovation programme and funding from gas company Northern Gas Networks and Cadent.

Energy minister, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, said: 'While these new houses in Gateshead will look like any other, they will showcase how low carbon hydrogen can transform the way we power our homes and offer a glimpse of what the future holds as we build back greener.'

The Government also plans on setting up a Hydrogen Neighbourhood and develop plans for a Hydrogen Town before 2030.
