What are the best options to decarbonise energy?
In this episode of Decarb Discussions Victoria Mustard talks to Tom Baxter, co-founder of the Hydrogen Science Coalition and Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen.
Hydrogen, when coupled with CCUS or produced from electrolysis using renewable sources, could provide a carbon neutral alternative to natural gas.
But is this reason enough to select it as the default option to decarbonise our gas grid? According to Thomas Baxter, co-founder of the Hydrogen Science Coalition and Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, the evidence is lacking.
In this episode we cover:
- The key discriminators when selecting the best ways to decarbonise our power system
- Whether using hydrogen to decarbonise the gas grid could be viable, both from a cost and a safety perspective
- Why more evidence might be needed
- What other technologies could contribute to reduce our carbon footprint, and why they might not be receiving the attention they deserve
