Over the next few years, the prevalence of low-carbon heating technologies will rise significantly, bringing big changes in how the UK’s buildings are heated. Hydrogen is one of the key energy sources forming part of this conversation.
The UK Hydrogen Strategy gives clear direction on the Government’s commitment to the role this low carbon fuel source can play in meeting its target of becoming net zero by 2050 and builds on ambitions previously outlined in the Government’s 10-Point Plan and Energy White Paper. However, it highlights the uncertainty remaining on the scale and demand we can expect to see in the future, with hydrogen expected to form between 20-35% of the UK's energy consumption by 2050 and no final decision on the role of hydrogen in buildings until 2026 after the hydrogen village trial in 2025.

A Yorkshire-based boiler manufacturer has overtaken the competition and developed a stainless steel gas boiler flue suitable for use in high-rise buildings.
Sime Ltd has responded to the new ‘Class A’ requirements in line with the revised Building Regulations relating to fire safety and is pleased to announce that its stainless steel flues are now available.
Worcester Bosch has launched its Greenstar 8000 Lifestyle range – a boiler specifically designed to offer heating installers with more choice, depending on installation location and customer need.
After years of development and direct feedback from hundreds of installers, the new Greenstar 8000 Lifestyle includes two models: Life and Style. Both models see a series of new additions and refinements over Worcester Bosch’s hugely popular Greenstar CDi Classic, which had been installed in well over 1 million homes.
