The majority of a £90m government investment into alternative energy projects intended to move away from carbon intensive heating for homes will be focused on building two new hydrogen plants.
The Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers (IGEM) has given a cautious welcome to Ofgem’s Decarbonisation Action Plan, which appears to hedge its bets over the route to Net Zero emissions and not back one single path. But IGEM warned that ‘ripping out the central heating’ - going to an electric-only grid - was not a feasible option for government.
The partners behind the HyDeploy hydrogen network development project are preparing for their first public trial of a grid-injected hydrogen blend, following the successful launch of a pilot at Keele University in Staffordshire.
A lack of simple binary choices to help realise low to no carbon heat will require the formation of an ‘Olympic-style’ delivery body to coordinate the required national response from both government and industry, a new study has found.
Heating policy has been put centre-stage of the national debate on how to prevent catastrophic climate change posing major questions for our homes and offices, Mike Childs, head of science, policy and research argues.
A heating industry-backed survey commissioned by BEIS is seeking public feedback on major challenges facing the heating sector around the move to lower carbon appliances and how the industry can better encourage women to train as HVAC specialists.
A lack of detailed commitments to decarbonise buildings and incentivise the uptake of more energy efficient solutions are among a range of factors undermining the government’s 2050 net zero carbon goal.
The implications of the new British Standard BS 7593:2019 for commissioning and maintaining heating and cooling water systems along with recent regulation changes on energy efficiency standards will be the focus of an upcoming series of workshops.
Experts from across the building services sector, politics and academia will be joining H&V News for its first Future of HVAC Summit that is scheduled to be held on October 3 at the Bloomsbury Hotel in London.
Government must take drastic and decisive decisions over the future of the gas grid by the middle of the next decade to help address a range of concerns over the viability of its zero-carbon heating aims.
