Hydrogen, heat pumps and hype

Wednesday 27 April 2022
19:00 to 20:30

Hydrogen, heat pumps and hype: options for decarbonising home heating and transport. While significant progress has been made in decarbonising the UK electricity supply, there has been less progress with transport and even less with home heating. Proposed solutions include electricity, hydrogen and biofuels. This talk will look at these options, identifying what is realistic and what is hype and greenwashing designed to protect ‘business as usual’. A retired physicist, Angela Cotton is co-chair of Transition Southampton and the author of our popular Sustainable Living Guide. She began researching the options for low carbon heating for her own benefit but quickly realised the wider importance of highlighting the genuine solutions amid the hype.
