Purpose of the session

This is the second evidence session of the inquiry. The session will hear from energy companies with experience of installing low carbon heating technologies in homes, either commercially or in trials, to provide the Committee with an understanding of the specific barriers to delivering low carbon heating solutions to homes, and how these can be best overcome. They will also offer a perspective of the Government’s policies to encourage uptake of low carbon heating in homes, particularly on the Green Homes Grant. Then, the session will hear from organisations who represent, or are interested in the role of, local actors; to explore the suitability and viability of alternative low carbon heating solutions in a variety of situations, for example in different geographic regions, home ownership models and building types. The panel will also be able to provide an insight into the where responsibilities should lie for the coordination and delivery of low carbon heating on a local level.
