Head of Sustainability at Baxi Heating's report launch event
Our Head of Sustainability, Rein de Loor, spoke at the launch event of Baxi Heating's report 'Affordable heat decarbonisation: Is it time for a green heating credit?' last week.
Baxi Heating launched their latest report which finds ongoing affordability gap between low-carbon heat pumps - that could reduce many homes’ carbon footprint - and traditional gas boilers. Rein joined the panel discussion and spoke on business models for decarbonised heat and energy that provide long-term stability for consumers and industry.
