February’s edition of H&V News looks at the latest efforts to introduce legislation to reform payment performance in the HVAC and construction sector
This month’s H&V News includes a focus on a campaign to create post-election momentum in parliament to push for payment reforms. These have been long sought after in the HVAC sector to address concerns about the financial viability of the construction industry, particularly after the collapse of groups such as Carillion.
The issue also has an in-depth look at radical new findings from the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). The findings conclude that a heating strategy combining energy efficient technologies with behaviour change in end users and industry could curb power currently required for heating by 50 per cent.
We also hear from low-carbon heating expert Peter Thom on his views about the significant scale of changes required to decarbonise heat by 2050. With over 30 years of industry experience, Mr Thom argues that the major transformation of the gas grid required to meet demand for low to zero carbon heat was reminiscent in scope to previous major national gas reform projects. However, he adds that many questions remained unanswered on how hydrogen and electric solutions can be made a viable way of delivering heat to millions of homes and buildings.
