Title: New report by Policy Exchange 'Too hot to handle?'
Post by: Claus Best on October 14, 2016, 10:09:22 AM
A new report was published by the Policy Exchange think tank last month with the title "Too hot to handle?"
It's an in depth report on decarbonising heating in the residential housing sector, which is seen by them as further behind targets then power supply and transport.
Their biggest point is better insulation of the existing housing stock as cheapest and best option to achieve the 2050 standard of 80% reductions combined with greening the gas supply and other measures.
A very interesting report, which the AECB should use to put pressure on the Government to produce a comprehensive policy for retrofitting the existing housing stock.
