BEIS Open consultation - Enabling or requiring hydrogen-ready industrial boiler equipment: call for evidence

January 2022 | Closed

Hydrogen-ready industrial boilers have the potential to help industry decarbonise and kick start the UK hydrogen economy. They can run on fossil fuels today but are designed for subsequent conversion to hydrogen, enabling industry to transition to a low carbon future. The call for evidence covers these main areas:

  • how hydrogen-ready should be defined
  • whether hydrogen-ready boiler equipment would enable cheaper and faster fuel switching
  • whether government should take action to encourage hydrogen-ready boiler equipment.
  • the role of the supply chain and how best to maximise the economic opportunities for the UK

 

This consultation closes on 14 March 2022
