Latest Element Energy renewable heat study publishedApril 5, 2012
The Committee on Climate Change’s International Aviation and Shipping Review was launched today. The Review provides advice to the UK Government on the inclusion of emissions from aviation and shipping in carbon budgets. In order to make appropriate recommendations, the CCC needed to understand the scope for emission abatement in other sectors. In this context, the CCC commissioned a study led by Element Energy to understand the potential to decarbonise heat supply in the UK.
Building on previous work, the study considers the long term future of renewable heat in UK buildings. Key questions that the report addresses include:
- To what extent could heat supply be decarbonised by 2050?
- What is the likely role of each low carbon supply technology?
- What might the cost to the country be of decarbonising heat supply?
- What are the risks and wider impacts of low carbon heat futures?
