E4tech and Element co-author study for the National Infrastructure Commission assessing the cost of decarbonising UK heat

E4tech with lead partners Element Energy conducted a study for the National Infrastructure Commission to examine the costs associated with different pathways to decarbonising heat in the UK. These pathways included electrification (heat pumps, direct electric heating), decarbonisation of gas (hydrogen networks, biomethane) and hybrid gas-electric approaches, supported by the deployment of energy efficiency, heat […]
