Zero Carbon Heat & the Consumer
Tuesday 26th June, 15.00-17.00
1 Parliament Street, SW1A 2LW, Room C

Since domestic heat accounts for over 40% of UK energy consumption and nearly a quarter of all carbon emissions, Government recognises that greater focus is needed on transforming the UK’s heat supply.

With household heat pumps and biomass boilers, area-wide district heating systems, and the injection of ‘cleaner gas’ supplies all being considered, consumer needs must be best served by policy makers and technology providers. In light of this ‘Zero Carbon Heat and the Consumer’ asks: 

- How will consumers respond to the introduction of new zero carbon heat technologies?
- Will these solutions deliver more affordable heat? 
- Will they work for the consumer and their behaviour patterns?
- How will vulnerable households be taken into consideration?
- Are there lessons to be learned from the UK’s 1950/60s introduction of gas central heating?

Chaired by:
James Heappey MP, PRASEG Chair
