To combat increasingly cold winters of the northern hemisphere. The UK is rolling out the Hy4Heat program infusing 250 thousand pounds in funding into the venture. Here conventional heating and cooking appliances usually fuelled by incinerating coal to turn it into electricity. Will now be powered by hydrogen. This will begin as soon as April 2021 and offer a window into the future for many Brits. Gateshead in the North East of England will be the trial location and the two investors of the scheme are Northern Gas Network and Cadent will supply 250 thousand pounds each towards the trailblazing project. Replacing fossil fuels in the domestic environment is a priority for the UK government as natural gas provides most of the heating in the UK also produces 30% of its carbon emissions.
However, prospects are set for the creation of electricity in the US, through the use of full circle battery electrolyzers that use a solar-powered cell, in turn, creating hydrogen which then converts into electricity.
