Heat decarbonisation: overview of current evidence base. An overview of key issues identified by the government review of options for achieving long term heat decarbonisation. Government has reviewed the evidence base on options for achieving long term heat decarbonisation. This report provides an overview of the key issues arising from our review and seeks to: highlight the different characteristics of the main alternative sources of low carbon heat and the approaches to achieving transformational change; set out strategically important issues, ‘strategic inferences’, which we have drawn from the evidence available to help focus the development of our long term policy framework; identify areas that require further exploration to inform the development of a new long term policy framework for heat The review confirmed we need: better understanding of the different options available for decarbonising heating; a clearer common agenda across industry, academia and the public sector to ensure effort and resources are effectively and efficiently applied to long term heat decarbonisation issues. Consultation closes 22nd Feb 2018.
