We hosted senior members of Fife Council and local housing associations on Wednesday 8 March to mark the beginning of construction of our hydrogen homes demonstration facility. We also announced that we have surpassed our minimum goal of signing up 270 participants and are continuing to allow more households to opt-in.
The new demonstration facility will comprise of two hydrogen show homes where visitors will be able to try out domestic hydrogen appliances. It’s due to open this summer and is being built by contractors Marshall Construction in Fife Energy Park alongside the project’s hydrogen production and storage site. Market-leading boiler manufacturers Baxi and Worcester Bosch are project partners and will be providing hydrogen boilers for the show homes and for the project.
CEO Mark Wild OBE said: “We’re delighted to announce that we’ve gone beyond our minimum target of 270 households registering to take part in H100 Fife, and are still welcoming more homes in the area. We’re incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support we’ve received from residents and the wider community.
“The demo homes will allow people to see for themselves that hydrogen boilers and appliances are very similar to their natural gas equivalents. We look forward to successfully delivering the project and providing critical evidence which will help decarbonise home heating.”
Chair of Levenmouth Area Committee Councillor Colin Davidson said: “The H100 Fife project continues to gather pace and support from residents and businesses. I am very pleased over 270 households have volunteered to participated so far, and that SGN continues to engage and support residents to highlight the huge benefits it’ll bring. SGN is also providing much needed support to local organisations and causes, demonstrating their commitment to Levenmouth and the surrounding area.
Councillor David Ross, Leader of Fife Council, added: “I am delighted to help mark the start of construction of the hydrogen demonstration facility. By enabling residents, visitors and businesses to see clean, green hydrogen in action the H100 Fife project will demonstrate to local people how Fife is at the forefront of tackling climate change.”
