Britain’s five gas networks have outlined plans to spend more than £900m on zero-carbon energy infrastructure and hydrogen deployment across the UK, subject to Government approval on funding, and this is being welcomed within the heating sector.
Martyn Bridges, director of technical communication and product management at Worcester Bosch said: 'We are delighted to see proposals for such a substantial investment into preparing the existing gas infrastructure for a switch to hydrogen.
'If the Zero Carbon Commitment package is approved by the government and Ofgem it will be a massive step forward for the decarbonisation of heating and hot water in this country
