Hydrogen appliance labels set out

HHIC appliance manufacturers have agreed new, clear labelling for hydrogen appliances.

The new labels will show three categories:
• Hydrogen Blend compatible, capable of running on a blend of up to 20 per cent hydrogen in the gas network
• Hydrogen Ready appliances, capable of running on a 20 per cent blend but which can be converted by a Gas Safe engineer to run on 100 per cent hydrogen
• 100% Hydrogen, an appliance built specifically to run on the gas without the need for conversion.

HHIC director Stewart Clements says: “These labels bring clarity to consumers and installers. As we go on the journey towards decarbonising the gas networks, industry needs to be absolutely transparent on what appliances can and can’t do.

“The labelling… will be used by them to clearly identify products. It will also help communicate the changes that will take place in UK homes, as we work towards achieving net zero.”
