Most household thermal energy needs are currently met unsustainably via nonrenewable energy sources, that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. To displace these emissions in certain high net-worth, fringe-of-grid markets, Callaghan Innovation is developing a hydrogen renewable energy system called HyLink. In this study, we use a Technology Readiness Level Assessment(TRLA) to evaluate the market readiness of HyLink, and we tailored the TRLA criteria to fit the system. Based on data from user surveys, public surveys, and performance logs we concluded that HyLink can be classified as TRL 7. With a few recommended adjustments, the HyLink system can be further advanced to TRL 8.
