Smart Energy International| The use of hydrogen for residential heating in Ireland

Smart Energy International wrote about our report assessing the potential of hydrogen in decarbonising residential heating in Ireland.

Deva Devaraj, Modelling Analyst at Cornwall Insight, explained that while the use of hydrogen can cut CO2 emissions, there were limits to its effectiveness

A tonne of CO2 emissions can be avoided annually by switching just seven Irish households to 20% hydrogen blended gas. However, only a third of the households are connected to the gas network which greatly limits the implementation of hydrogen-based solutions.
