The use of heat is the single largest contributor to UK carbon emissions, but heat markets are commonly considered to be one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonise.
The low-carbon heat market is nascent, with a range of technologies and fuel sources competing to gain traction in different, localised markets. These include electrification through heat pumps, hydrogen in the existing gas network, biofuels, and heat networks.
We look at each of these innovative options for future heat, to provide insight on how they may develop in the future decarbonised economy in the UK.
