From my calculations, it looks like the decarbonization of the gas network will result in gas going from£0.04/kW to £0.24/kW, when it switches to Hydrogen.
This is because it takes 55kW of electricity of to electrolyse water to produce hydrogen gas which gives 33.6kW of power. Getting hydrogen from other sources either produce carbon, or are still in the very early lab phase.
This does not take into account the increased losses in the network, or additional manufacturing assets.
Is this what the future will be like - gas too expensive to use domestically?
Anyone care to comment; are my assumptions wrong?
Who will use domestic gas in the future?
