Highlights Policy support for blue H2 a ‘mistake’: report author Blue hydrogen 20% worse for GHG emissions than gas UK hydrogen strategy to back both green and blue A scientific paper released Aug. 12 that said low-carbon hydrogen in heating was significantly worse for the environment than using natural gas poses a challenge for the UK’s forthcoming hydrogen strategy, expected to include support for both low-carbon and renewable production.  Renewable, or green, hydrogen is produced from the electrolysis of water powered by renewable electricity, and low-carbon, or blue, production is via steam methane reforming of natural gas with carbon capture and storage. The study from scientists at Cornell and Stanford universities concludes, however, that using blue hydrogen for heating had 20% higher greenhouse gas emissions than using natural gas.
