BEIS intends to appoint a contractor(s) to deliver comprehensive research reports on the feasibility of converting commercial sector appliances (Lot 1) and industrial heat generation (Lot 2) from natural gas to hydrogen. This will require full characterisation of the market and identification of any knowledge gaps and barriers to conversion that may need to be addressed. They will inform consideration of whether further evidence, potentially in the form of practical testing, will be required to demonstrate that these sectors can be successfully converted as part of demonstrating and de-risking the use of hydrogen for heat in UK homes and businesses.
