Pathways to 2020
Heating and Hot Water Pathways to 2020
The Heating and Hot Water Taskforce have produced a report outlining how they feel the development of the heating an hot water industry will help government achieve its carbon reduction targets, including the Pathways to 2020.
Extract from the Executive summary
Government targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions cannot be met without an improvement of the energy efficiency of the UK housing stock, which accounts for around 27% of all UK emissions. In turn, heating and hot water account for an estimated 84% of domestic energy consumption and 71% of CO2 emissions. It is clear, therefore, that the domestic heating and hot water sector has a significant and critical role to play.
