Electrolux has partnered with the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) to create a concept hydrogen gas cooktop to power the kitchen of the future.

The Electrolux concept 90cm UltimateTaste 900 Hydrogen Gas Cooktop delivers the reliability and heat of a gas cooktop without the environmental impact of traditional electricity or gas-powered appliances when connected to a renewable gas supply.

The cooktop has been developed for the AGIG demo home, HyHome in Victoria, where the appliances, heating and hot water are all powered by hydrogen gas. Currently, the hydrogen gas used in HyHome for demonstration purposes is ‘grey’, meaning it is created from natural gas. However, the type that AGIG will continue to use to decarbonise gas networks is renewable gas made from green hydrogen, created from renewable electricity, or biomethane.

Electrolux marketing director, Richelle Barker said, “At Electrolux, our philosophy is all about shaping better and more sustainable living for people around the world, so we’re thrilled to be involved in such a progressive project in partnership with the AGIG that demonstrates our long-term commitment to better living and eating.

“In an era where eco-consciousness is paramount, the Electrolux Hydrogen Gas Cooktop is a premium and sustainable option for the discerning cook. It can produce no greenhouse gas emissions when run on renewable hydrogen, making it an environmentally responsible choice for the kitchen.”
