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.
LG said that it is seeing growing UK interest for hybrid heat solutions that can combine electric appliances such as its air to water heat pump technologies with traditional gas boilers.
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.
The UK must look to its European neighbours for examples of heat network strategies that can help overcome existing barriers to expanding uptake of such systems, a new study has concluded. Greater choice and flexibility in how heat networks are implemented and managed is expected to be an important step in decarbonising buildings across the UK in order to drastically cut carbon emissions.
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.
