Low energy, efficient electric heating is the future
The electrification of heat, power & transport is a global mega-trend. Governments plan to dispense with fossil fuels by 2100, many setting their green targets much closer. Fossil fuels simply can’t compete with clean, efficient and distributed energy sources. The future is electric and we’re at the forefront of this transition.
Whilst climate policy and subsidy support have driven the growth in renewable electricity over the last decade, growth is now driven by sound economics. In real-terms, utility-scale wind and solar are cheaper than coal & nuclear generation, and likely to be cheaper than gas by the end of this decade.
Over 70% of UK household energy usage is for heating, making it by far the largest household energy expense. There has already been a significant reduction in energy through energy-saving lighting and household appliances and the focus has now changed to heating. Gas is no longer a long-term option. The Netherlands have already announced the closure of their gas supply by 2030, the biggest change in our energy use is happening….
