A prototype boiler designed to run on 100 per cent hydrogen is among the innovative technologies viewed by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) in the push to decarbonise heat.
The heat pump industry has argued that the government’s commitment to ensure the UK achieves net zero carbon emissions by 2050 will require a drastic rethink of both short and longer-term heating policy.
Theresa May will use one of her last acts as acting prime minister to commit the UK to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 amidst growing industry pressure for stricter climate change targets.
The inaugural H&V News Future of HVAC Summit is set to tackle a host of major topics facing the HVAC sector, with the focus on the practicalities of reaching net zero emissions from heating.
The latest edition of H&V News looks at what future there may be for gas heating after the government confirmed that boilers designed to burn fossil fuels will not be permissible in new buildings going forward.
Any partial or complete switchover of the gas grid to Hydrogen will require drastic and wide ranging changes to heating technologies and their maintenance over the next ten years.
Gas will not be permitted as part of proposals to create a new UK standard for how clean heat must be delivered in new homes by 2025, a government policy lead has said.
The December issue of H&V News sees out 2018 by focusing on several complex issues ranging from fears over the potential scale of enforcement failures of ventilation standards, to the future role gas and biomass heating may play in the drive for a low carbon economy.
More must be done to adopt innovative technologies such as hydrogen and carbon capture and storage solutions in order to offset predictions of an increase in global carbon dioxide emissions, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned.
The independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has published a new report on the role that hydrogen can play as part of a wider approach to realising lower carbon heat.
