Future Heat Series

Future Heat Series

During 2014 and 2015  IGEM is sponsoring the independent Future Heat Series research inquiry being led by Carbon Connect. The inquiry is a response to a perceived lack of coherence in policy relating to how the UK heats its homes and businesses.

The inquiry is designed to bring industry representatives, government policymakers and senior parliamentarians together to explore the facts around heat generation and usage and build cross-party consensus.

The second report in the Future Heat Series, Policy for Heat: Transforming the System was launched on 14th October 205. The report urges Government to implement an ambitious, long-term decarbonisation strategy for the heat sector, before it's too late.

The report brought together a wide cross-section of industry and business members, academics and experts in the field in order to lay out a set of policies that could help the UK's government decarbonise the heat system in the UK in a cost-effective way.

The inquiry follows the successful Future Electricity Series research inquiry during 2013 and early 2014. Also sponsored by IGEM and led by Carbon Connect, the inquiry's reports on power generation in the UK were cited during scrutiny of the Energy Act which recently passed into law.
