UK is failing to cut emissions from heating homes

The UK must continue to decarbonise, as reaching net zero emissions for heating will have a net saving and protect us from volatile gas prices.

With the UK still heavily reliant on gas. which makes up around 14% of the UK's carbon emissions, and despite soaring prices, not enough is being done to wean the UK away from gas to more low carbon alternatives, such as heat pumps.

With analysts making it clear that investment in renewable energy will bring down energy prices, Jan Rosenow, a director at the Regulatory Assistance Project, has said recently, “Shifting away from fossil fuels is the only real solution to energy price rises.”

Despite being behind the progress needed to reach the target of Net Zero by 2050, there has still been a record level of investment in renewable energy as investment hit $755 billion USD.

A 27% increase in investment between 2020 & 2021 is very encouraging and shows strong appetite for the renewable energy sector. To prevent the worst effects of global warming becoming a reality, investment needs to grow to an estimated $2.1 trillion between 2022 and 2025, nearly 3 times last year’s level. Grants are still available to help companies with the cost of switching to renewable energy supplies such as solar
