A strategy for sustainable heat
Heat is so much a part of the fabric of our everyday lives that we simply take it for granted. Most of the UK’s heat comes from burning North Sea gas. This supply has been so cheap and abundant that we have never had to be sparing in the amount of heat we use. But the energy future facing us now is quite different. As concern about the UK’s contribution to global warming mounts, a heating economy that relies on carbon-emission producing gas, is no longer viable.
