Here we explore why it’s so important we act now and what can be done to enable fossil free heating in the UK:
The challenge is big and change needs to happen beyond the energy sector. We’re bringing together the people and ideas that are helping to change how we heat our homes and businesses, not just from the energy sector, but industry associations, property developers, local authorities, green investors and consultancies. Here you will find a variety of useful perspectives on the UK’s route towards fossil free heating – we need to think beyond energy to make it happen.
We welcome leading views and expert contributions on the UK’s journey to fossil free heating. Get in touch with us to discuss your ideas by email: email@example.com.
