Featured: future Net Zero’s In Focus – Heat “How to tackle the low carbon heat problem”

For this months future Net Zero’s (FNZ) “In Focus – Heat”, Gemserv’s Brendan Murphy discusses how one very significant policy area, heat, has not yet been fully appreciated or addressed when talking about carbon emissions.

Where do we begin?… For years now, most of our attention has been focused on solving the puzzle of how to move away from fossil-fuelled electricity generation to renewables. The switch to electrically powered transportation followed and has continued to grow rapidly, with electric vehicles becoming more and more popular, and charging infrastructure spreading across the UK.

However, to date, one very significant policy area, heat, has not yet been fully appreciated or addressed.

At Gemserv, we were involved with the nation’s efforts to reduce emissions from heat from day one, helping to deliver major energy efficiency and low carbon heat programmes directly (Green Deal and Biomass Suppliers List).
