Energy UK responds to CCC heating report

Responding to the Committee on Climate Change’s ‘Hydrogen in a low-carbon economy’ report, Energy UK’s chief executive Lawrence Slade said:

"Decarbonising heat is a major challenge and one that we must tackle if we are to meet our climate change targets, so the Committee on Climate Change’s report is an important contribution.

“It may well be that there isn’t a one size fits all solution for all homes and businesses so it is important to explore the various options. That’s why we have been calling for the Government to fund large scale trials to assess the various options and inform the big decisions that will need to be made on heating in the near future.

“If we are to start rolling out low carbon heating systems in the next couple of decades, the Government needs to focus its attention and resources on this challenge without delay.”
