H&V News April digital issue out now

April’s H&V News considers government commitments to end fossil fuel heating in new homes by 2025 that will see existing gas appliances effectively banned in any future construction work

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.

Chancellor Philip Hammond has committed to adopt provocative calls in February by the independent Committee on Climate Change to permanently end the use of gas boilers, at least in their current form, in new build homes within six years.

With the pledge being introduced alongside longer-term commitments to create a greener gas grid, industry will have to make a case for new heating technologies designed to make use of potentially green gas such as hydrogen in future developments.

The issue also looks at industry concerns over a number of barriers preventing compliance with ventilation hygiene standards, as well as calls for rethink of restrictions on migrant workers post-Brexit.
