In 2020 the EU Parliament and Members States agreed to cut carbon emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. Outside of the EU, the UK government aimed for an even more ambitious plan: a reduction by 78% by 2035.
With 13% of the EU’s greenhouse gases emitted by the building industry — the majority of which being driven by fossil fuel combustion — BSRIA is investigating how these objectives can be reached and how this will affect the heating market in the ensuing years.
In a next study untitled HVAC 2030: the paths to decarbonisation of the residential heating market BSRIA will look at the expansion of heating products during the transition period 2020-2030 in three of the major heating markets in Europe: France, Germany and the UK.
We will be looking at the penetration of renewable-based heating systems into the new-build, the pace of refurbishment in the vast housing park, and how hybrid systems are benefitting from the move away from fossil fuels.
Our June 30th webinar, hosted by Socrates Christidis, Heating Project Manager and Aline Breslauer, Heat Pump Research Manager, will present some of our findings and market outlook from the viewpoint of boiler and renewable industry stakeholders.
