New report calls on the Government to develop a long-term roadmap to decarbonise heat for buildings in the UK

14th October 2015
New report by Carbon Connect follows cross-party inquiry chaired by Shadow Energy Minister, Jonathan Reynolds MP, and Conservative, Dan Byles MP. • Report argues we are embarking on a nationwide transformation in the way we heat our homes and buildings. • Report calls for the next Government to fill gaps in the evidence base and ramp up delivery of low carbon heating and energy efficiency. • Report argues there is no one solution to cutting emissions from building heat, and instead we are heading towards a ‘mixed future’ of technologies and fuels.   DOWNLOAD REPORT Policy for Heat: Transforming the System, urges Government to implement an ambitious, long-term decarbonisation strategy for the heat sector, before it’s too late in new inquiry report. The report builds on the work of Part 1 in the Future Heat Series which compared recent decarbonisation pathways and analyses to indentify and highlight key policy mechanisms and transistions that are needed in order to decarbonise heat for buildings by 2050.  Chaired by Shadow Energy Minister, Jonathan Reynolds MP, and Conservative MP Rebecca Pow (and also previous MP and member of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee, Dan Byles MP until he stood down at the General Election), the report is written by cross-party think tank group, Carbon Connect. The report was published in Parliament at a cross-party debate on Wednesday, 14th November. Sponsored by Energy & Utilities Alliance (EUA) and the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM), the report is the second in a cross-party and independent inquiry series.
