Great Britain to create a “hydrogen town”
The proposal was contained in a 10-year-plan presented this month by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, dubbed the “green industrial revolution”.

    Great Britain plans to create a “hydrogen town” by 2030, introducing a heating system based on hydrogen in tens of thousands of homes in one of the country’s regions.

    The proposal was contained in a 10-year-plan presented this month by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, dubbed the “green industrial revolution”.

     The first stage, to be completed by 2023, calls for homes in a single district to use hydrogen for heating and cooking. By 2025, the plan will extend to a number of homes equivalent to an average English village and by 2030 up to 10,000 homes will be included – the equivalent of a small city.

    The 10-point programme seeks to make Britain carbon-neutral by 2050. Johnson said 12 billion pounds would be invested in “green” projects – independent of the effects of the COVID pandemic.

    More than 1.2 billion pounds will be invested in nuclear and hydrogen technology and in projects involving carbon capture.

    Britain is also to end all sales of new petrol and diesel vehicles 10 years earlier than planned – with the deadline now set for 2030. Hybrid machines can be sold up to 2035.

     A total of 1.3 billion pounds will be invested in a network of charging stations for electric vehicles and a further 1 billion pounds next year invested in improving energy efficiency in buildings.

    Plans call for offshore wind power capacity to be boosted four-fold to 40 GW by 2030. Clusters are to be created for carbon capture and development of large and small-scale nuclear power projects.
