Heat and Buildings Strategy provides investment clarity

The long awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy provides clarity and direction for the heating industry and consumers alike, says leading heating industry trade body, the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council, HHIC.

Stewart Clements, Director, HHIC said;

“As an industry, we have worked collaboratively to provide government with the information they needed to make policy decisions on the future of heat in domestic buildings in the UK. I am pleased that the key evidence outlined by HHIC has been acknowledged by BEIS.”

“HHIC today welcomes the publication of the Heat and Buildings strategy, HHIC and its members will continue to support the government and consumers with the transition to a mix of new, low-carbon heating solutions for different property types in different parts of the country – such as electric heat pumps, heat networks, and hydrogen boilers.”

“The strategy from government allows the HHIC membership to make the investment choices required to facilitate the manufacturing, installation, and training for low carbon heating products.”

To support the UK’s transition to Net Zero, HHIC has outlined where improvements need to be made and how different domestic systems can be aligned with the country’s long-term goals via a comprehensive whitepaper entitled ‘Heating up to Net Zero’.
