Adveco (A.O Smith Water Heaters) session - 'Countering the uncertainty of installing gas supplies to new buildings'
Adveco outlines practical considerations to help designers facing the decision to adopt all electric for new buildings or outlay for a gas supply ready for conversion to hydrogen.
The future energy supply in the UK remains unclear as detailed studies are carried out to determine the feasibility of Hydrogen as a widespread energy source. Until our electric/hydrogen path is settled designers must choose whether new buildings should go all electric or outlay for a gas supply that can be converted to hydrogen in the future. The decision could affect future carbon emissions and running costs for the lifetime of the building, Adveco outlines the practical considerations to help decide whether the cost and the need to reduce carbon make continued investment in gas infrastructure viable for commercial new build projects.
