H&V News July digital issue is online now

July’s H&V News considers the drastic transformation required in the UK’s heating and energy infrastructure to ensure new legislation requiring the UK to become carbon neutral by 2050 is viable

Calls to ensure UK buildings have net zero carbon emissions by 2050 is now a political reality after outgoing prime minister Theresa May enshrined the targets in law.

The July issue of H&V News finds that a drastic rethink of the UK’s energy infrastructure is now urgently needed to support the installation of a range of heating systems that can offset their carbon footprint in line with the stricter net zero aims.

However, calls for such a strategy has posed difficult questions for the future of the HVAC sector. A combination of electric, gas and other approaches to off-grid heat have long been seen as the most likely path to meet previous low carbon ambitions, but the latest net zero commitments are seen as needing an even clearer strategy for how this can be introduced over the next three decades.

The issue also looks at the potential for using advanced new biotech materials in buildings to transform functions such as ventilation, as well as efforts to introduce major reforms to enforcing building safety regulation.
