On this first phase of the development of the WHR unit and with limited testing, the unit has provided the highest recorded output of over 30 kW in the first stage build test period. This is a remarkable achievement in Inspirit’s history.
The UK government is determined to increase the production of low carbon hydrogen in a move that could see hydrogen replace natural gas in domestic heating and industrial energy supplies. In an ambitious move, there are plans to introduce the world’s first national hydrogen subsidy scheme. This would see the sale of green and blue hydrogen subsidised, therefore able to compete on price with cheaper but highly polluting grey hydrogen. This all makes sense so far, but what next?
A report by the National Housing Federation has cast a very surprising light on the subject of emissions and the threat to the environment. The report, which focused on homes in England, found that the 25 million homes in England create 58.5 million tonnes of CO2 every year. To put this into context, there are 27 million cars in England, emitting 56 million turns of CO2 annually. Home emissions equate to the same as 28 million cars, confirming that leaky homes are potentially a greater threat to the environment.
While the introduction of wind farms across the UK (and worldwide) has been controversial at times, there’s no doubting the environmental benefits. As wind energy technology continues to develop at pace, it seems that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could play a significant role in the future. Even relatively minor tweaks can significantly increase the amount of renewable energy created by wind turbines. So how will this work?
