Decarbonising heat is a generational challenge
Different regions of the world take different approaches to heating their buildings, generally based on locally available resources, and the price of power. In the UK, these factors have led to gas being the predominant model of heating, and as a result, buildings are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for 88 MtCO2 of emissions (18% of UK total).
Achieving net zero by 2050 requires ramping up action, and while programs are well under way in power generation and surface transport, concerted action in heat is absent.
Vattenfall worked in collaboration with Baringa to analyse the consumer perspective of heat decarbonisation, and explored characteristics of a potential policy framework that can deliver it.
