Description

This event will look at how to decarbonise the 20% of emissions that comes from heating the UK’s 28 million homes. A Policy Exchange report last year, ‘Too Hot to Handle’ highlighted that the previous Government’s plan to decarbonise heating by fitting electric heat pumps in most homes by 2050 would cost about £300 billion. All in all costing as much as £12,000 per household to deliver the plans to reduce carbon emissions from domestic heating. Before 2050 around 26 million homes will each require new low carbon installations – the equivalent of ten Milton Keynes’ each year. This event will explore options on how to do this in a cost effective and timely manner. It will be difficult to meet our renewable generation targets, let alone our decarbonisation targets, without looking at the carbon impacts of our heat use. We need to apply the same effort to decarbonising heat as has been applied to electricity.
