H&V News June digital issue is online now

June’s H&V News looks at whether recommendations for government to commit to net zero carbon emissions are possible and what this will mean for a HVAC sector already under pressure to change

The implications of calls from the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) for the UK government to commit to stricter targets on reducing national carbon emissions over the next three decades are a core focus of this month’s H&V News.

Key figures from across the industry such as BESA chief executive David Frise have argued that a 100 per cent reduction in the UK’s emission from 1990 levels were “eminently achievable”, despite the significant input required from sectors such as HVAC to meet the target.

At the same time, figures from across the UK building services sector have said that a widespread lack of capability to understand and tackle whole-life carbon emissions across the HVAC supply chain will undermine broader net-zero ambitions without new construction approaches

The issue also looks at calls from CIPHE for a complete end to the use of lead solder in heating to address concerns about misuse of the product in water systems, as well as a £7m support programme from government to ensure sufficient work placements are in place for T Level qualifications. These post-GCSE vocational courses are set to launch in 2020 and include construction as one of the initial subjects.
