Hydrogen high street: could these homes change the way we keep warm

The houses are intentionally unremarkable in every way but one: they are the first in the UK to run on a blend of clean-burning hydrogen as part of the most sophisticated hydrogen testing facility in the world. Welcome to Hystreet.

Engineers at the five-hectare site are testing whether hydrogen can safely replace the fossil-fuel gas pumped through transmission pipes and local grid networks into British homes as part of the government’s efforts to meet climate targets.

Charley, hydrogen made from fossil fuel gas is not "clean". The energy wasted in converting gas to hydrogen actually makes it dirtier than fossil fuel gas.

Why replace a dirty fuel with a dirtier one?
