Call for evidence - Future Gas Series Part 3: Consumer and Appliance

Call for evidence - Future Gas Series Part 3: Consumer and Appliance

26th November 2018

Future Gas Series to examine the role of the consumer in decarbonising gas in the UK

Carbon Connect launches its call for evidence today for its final Future Gas Series inquiry which will be exploring consumer attitudes to heat, new decarbonisation methods/equipment, and how this might impact on homes and workspaces. It will also take ethical and safety issues into consideration, specifically looking at perceptions of the use of hydrogen for heating - and how vulnerable customers can be protected during transitions.

Carbon Connect is also interested in the economic and technical implications of changing applications to use low carbon gas - how this transition might be delivered, and paid for.

This inquiry is being co-chaired by a cross-party group of MPs: Dr Alan Whitehead MP, Labour Member of Parliament for Southampton Test, Alan Brown MP, SNP Member of Parliament for Kilmarnock and Loudoun, and James Heappey MP, Conservative Member of Parliament for Wells.
