Event Description

As the EU Green Deal prioritises buildings as a hard to decarbonise sector, hydrogen use to heat and power buildings is now a hotly debated topic. In this Power & Heat Boost webinar, we explore the role of hydrogen, as well as other renewable and decarbonised gases, to support the decarbonisation of buildings. Fostering the use of hydrogen with cogeneration for efficient heat and flexible power supply will be showcased. Pros and cons of hydrogen use in buildings will also be debated.
