UK Power Networks (UKPN) has launched a new project to examine how local authorities can advance low carbon heating. Heat Street will take a data-driven look into future energy systems for local authorities in London, the South and East of England. This will allow them to plan for the significant rise in low carbon heating and energy efficiency measures needed for the UK to hit its net zero target. The network operator will engage with property owners, local councils, property developers, businesses, academics and consumer groups to focus on the best steps in specific local areas to tackle heating. The sector is currently one of the UK’s largest emitters, accounting for about a third of the country’s carbon emissions or almost 120 million tonnes of CO2 according to official estimates.
