Brexit Britain ready for hydrogen 'revolution' as PM told to grasp 'fuel of the future'

Mike Foster, CEO of the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA), is among those who believe that adopting hydrogen is a sensible approach to reaching net zero by 2050.

The energy expert recently argued Britons can save more than £10,000 by replacing their polluting gas boilers with hydrogen-ready ones, when compared to more expensive heat pumps.

He now told the UK is well on track to have a hydrogen-ready network by 2030, following a “fortuitous decision” made nine years ago.

In 2002, the Health and Safety Executive warned of dangerous leaks from older iron and steel gas pipes, many of which dated to the Victorian era.
