Plans submitted for hydrogen-powered homes


Scotland could be set for its first homes powered by hydrogen after plans were submitted for over 500 homes outside of Aberdeen.

The £110mn proposal, by Cognito Oak, would see 550 homes built on land at Cloverhill, Bridge of Don that could be powered by low-carbon technology. An initial pilot scheme would see 30 homes powered by hydrogen fuel cells, with them installed with micro-CHP fuel cell technology, to test their performance in residential use.

In the application’s supporting statement, the developer said: “Hydrogen power is not only important to tackle the ever-increasing threat of climate change, but it also provides an opportunity for Aberdeen to lead the way in diversifying its economic specialisms and transition to alternative fuel sources.”
