Background to report:

Heating domestic and commercial buildings accounts for up to a quarter of UK greenhouse gas emissions. Unless heating is almost completely decarbonised, the overall 2050 target will be expensive to achieve, if not impossible. This report considers:

  • the wide range of low-carbon options available, the timeframes for developing and deploying them, and their interactions with the rest of the energy system;

  • critical issues that need to be addressed in the next few years to enable the transition;

  • the level of investment required; and

  • governance issues, including balancing the implications for the energy system with the interests of consumers and the practicalities of deployment.


Further details of the study can be found on the project page for Low-Carbon Heat.
