Hydrogen: the future fuel to achieve net zero?

H100 is a world-first green hydrogen-to-homes heating network on the Fife coast. Central heating is responsible for up to a third of the UK’s greenhouse gas output: a challenge that must be solved if we are to meet the legally-binding net zero targets set by the UK Government and Scottish Government.

Switching carbon-emitting natural gas for hydrogen, which doesn't produce carbon when it burns, is one of the ways that we can keep homes and businesses warm and safe while making ground in the fight against the climate emergency.

Fife council are supporting SGN who are developing a world-first hydrogen network in Buckhaven and Methil that will bring renewable hydrogen into homes in 2023, providing zero-carbon fuel for heating and cooking. 

Join Jonathan Coppock of Fife Council as his walks you through each phase of the project and how it works. He will reflect on the facts and figures and arm you with the inside knowledge you need on how to roll-out a similar project.
