Lower carbon heat: Are we on the right path?


The power sector is making progress on decarbonisation. The transport sector seems to be opting primarily for electrification. What about heat?

The Energyst is surveying businesses and public sector organisations for their views on heat.

We want to know whether or not you have implemented lower carbon heating options, or are considering them, and the factors that influence decision making.

We also seek views on whether current policies, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive, are working, and any thoughts on what might best improve current incentives.

Readers views will form part of the research component of our 2018 Heat Report. It’s sponsored by Baxi Heating, but is editorially independent and will feature a range of stakeholder views on the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Depending on the level of detail you provide, the survey will take between 5-10 minutes.

We appreciate your input and also seek more detailed views on heat challenges from end users for qualitative research.

Please take the survey here.
