Pleased to see my letter in today’s Telegraph, along with another appropriate response to the ban on fracking:
Just to recap on the CCC’s projections, gas power generation (with CCS) is planned to be 151 TWh. This is an increase on last year’s figure of 119 TWh:
Projected hydrogen demand is less certain, given the uncertainties around the deployment of heat pumps, but could vary between 53-225 TWh.
Natural gas used for domestic heating is currently 309 TWh. However, the steam reforming process will waste some of the energy used, and more where CCS is involved. Therefore, at the top end of the range, demand for gas for hydrogen production will almost certainly be much higher than now.
