This month’s magazine looks at calls for a flexible UK heating strategy that uses hybrid appliances and district heating systems, as opposed to taking a purely electric or gas approach
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.
A recent meeting of manufacturers, utilities companies and energy policy groups has found that a decarbonised gas grid that makes use of some form of hydrogen fuel blend will need to be complimented by a range of other technologies and heating approaches. An expansion of hybrid heating solutions that can run on electric during peak demand was just one of several approaches expected to be needed to ensure the UK’s low carbon ambitions can be met.
The issue also looks at a hard-hitting report looking at the impacts to air quality from domestic burning, as well as how industry is trying to respond to the concerns raised in the findings through focuses on stove design and fuel quality.
