AB - © (2014) by the Committee of WHEC2014. The debate on low carbon heat in Europe has become focused on a narrow range of technological options, largely neglecting hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Yet commercial ventures installing fuel cell CHP and establishing pilot programmes for injecting hydrogen into natural gas grids have already emerged. Furthermore, recent research suggests that the potential for hydrogen and fuel cells may have been overlooked, suggesting a gap between the scientific evidence base and policy direction. Thus there is a clear need-also recognised by government-for a clear assessment of the evidence on the potential for hydrogen and fuel cells in meeting the goals of European heat policy: The provision of secure, affordable, low-carbon heat. The UK H2FC Hub, which represents the UK hydrogen and fuel cell research community, is launching a White Paper in May 2014 to set out the potential for hydrogen and fuel cells to contribute to affordable, secure, low-carbon heating in the future. This paper will provide an authoritative, accessible, detailed account that is specifically targeted at policymakers and other stakeholders. It will bring together the evidence on the technical, economic, market, system and policy issues surrounding hydrogen and fuel cell heat.
