Worcester Bosch, the heating systems manufacturer, has met with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid MP, to present its new developments in low-carbon heating technology. On the 8th November, Mr Javid visited the manufacturing plant in Worcester with constituency MP Robin Walker, to view Worcester Bosch’s new “clean gas” development lab.

The pair viewed the company’s first hydrogen-ready boiler, with technology that could drastically reduce heating and hot water emissions in UK homes. The company believes this technology is a viable solution towards achieving the UK’s net zero carbon targets by 2050. It can run on natural gas until a future conversion of the gas grid to hydrogen.

Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Communication and Product Management at Worcester Bosch said; “The development of Hydrogen fired boilers will mean millions of existing heating systems in our homes can be saved, rather than the entire system needing to be replaced if alternative technologies such as heat pumps were installed.

“Millions of homes currently use a combi boiler system and if converted to hydrogen they would be able to continue to do so without the need for a new hot water storage cylinder” he added.
