Roundtable: Innovation, Technology and Low Carbon Heat

2 Hours

This session will consider the innovation that is required to support the UK’s transition to low carbon heat for buildings, including in the areas of technology (e.g. hydrogen demonstration projects) and consumer offers (e.g. heat as a service or internal house zoning).

Session questions:

  • How important is innovation to the UK’s delivery of low carbon heat? In which areas could innovation (in technology or more widely) be particularly useful to support the transition to low carbon heat transition?
  • How effectively is innovation in low carbon heat being supported by government policy? How could this be improved?
  • In which areas should government innovation funds (e.g. BEIS innovation funding) be targeted between 2020-25 to support the transition to low carbon heating?
