As the EU Green Deal prioritises buildings as a hard to decarbonise sector, hydrogen use to heat and power buildings is now a hotly debated topic. With annual renovation rates below 1% and more than 70% of heating in buildings supplied by old and inefficient boilers, accelerating building decarbonisation presents both challenges and exciting opportunities. A range of solutions are already available to supply efficient and increasingly renewable heat to and in buildings, including reducing demand, direct electrification, district heating, cogeneration, solar thermal, geothermal. Yet key challenges to the timely and cost-effective decarbonisation of buildings include the seasonality of heat demand, the variability and limited capacity of renewable electricity supply, constrained electricity grids, customer choice and cost. On the other hand, gas grids across Europe are today covering more than 50% of the energy needs in buildings, making it a major energy carrier with high decarbonisation potential. In this Power & Heat Boost webinar, we explore the role of hydrogen, as well as other renewable and decarbonised gases, to support the decarbonisation of buildings. Fostering the use of hydrogen with cogeneration for efficient heat and flexible power supply will be showcased. Pros and cons of hydrogen use in buildings will also be debated.
