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.
BSRIA has called for new legislation or financial incentives to help realise a carbon neutral built environment in response to major new findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) suggesting the world is off-track to prevent irreversible climate change.
Biogases such as biomethane and bioSNG have been put forward as near-term solutions to decarbonise the UK heat industry by switching away from natural gas, yet support is lacking to realise this change, a new cross-party report from Carbon Connect has argued.
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 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.
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.
Hydrogen burners suitable for use as part of domestic heating solutions are yet to be developed, with government intervention in the form of targeted financial support among key recommendations to address limited innovation of the technology so far.
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.
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.
