Energy distribution firm launches study to map out which green heating technologies are best-suited to different areas, from rural to urban. A “first of its kind” project to help communities to map out their shift towards a zero carbon heating system has been announced by electricity distributor UK Power Networks (UKPN), in a move aimed at finding street-level green heating solutions in a sector widely seen as one of the UK’s biggest net zero challenges. Nicknamed ‘Heat Street’, the project will see the distributor work with property owners, local councils, property developers, businesses, academics and consumer groups across London, South and South East England. The project will consider a range of low-carbon heating alternatives – including switching from gas boilers to electric heat pumps, installing cavity wall insulation, switching to another type of heating supply, or various combinations of each – according to UKPN.
