Enabling or requiring hydrogen-ready industrial boiler equipment: call for evidence

Closed 14 Mar 2022

Opened 20 Dec 2021


Hydrogen-ready industrial boilers have the potential to help industry decarbonise and kick start the UK hydrogen economy. They can run on fossil fuels today but are designed for subsequent conversion to hydrogen, enabling industry to transition to a low carbon future.

The call for evidence covers these main areas:

  • how hydrogen-ready should be defined
  • whether hydrogen-ready boiler equipment would enable cheaper and faster fuel switching
  • whether government should take action to encourage hydrogen-ready boiler equipment
  • the role of the supply chain and how best to maximise the economic opportunities for the UK

We want to hear from a broad range of groups, including but not limited to:

  • industrial sites
  • original equipment manufacturers for industrial boiler equipment
  • other participants in the supply chain for industrial boiler equipment
  • Energy Service Companies with an interest in hydrogen
  • gas suppliers, and other companies with an interest in hydrogen
  • non-governmental organisations, academics, and members of the public with an interest
