Alongside electrification, green gases will play a key role for decarbonising the buildings sector. This paper presents the views of the European Heating Industry on the role thay can play for for heating.

It integrates the ‘EHI Vision paper 2030-2050 for the decarbonisation of buildings’ by expanding on a number of aspects such as (1) recent developments in the supply chain of green gas / hydrogen (2) innovation in heating technologies to support the use of green gases, such as hydrogen (3) benefits of using green gases for heating from an energy system point of view, a consumer perspective as well as for the EU climate policy (4) green gas and hydrogen-ready heating technologies.

Finally, it indicates a number of EU policy barriers to be overcome in order to reap the benefits of green gases for heating, including through Ecodesign and Energy Labelling policy.
