Abstract

The UK Government’s acceptance of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) advice on moving to a net zero carbon economy by 2050 makes the need to decarbonise how we heat our homes of even more pressing and strategic importance. Whatever the mix of solutions that is ultimately adopted, increased electrification of our energy system and economy is inevitable.
