The UK government has set, and the Irish Government has proposed, legally binding targets to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  And in addition, the UK has committed to cut emissions by 78% compared to 1990 levels by 2035.

 

In the UK, around 85% of homes are heated by natural gas, and in Ireland, around 705,000 homes in 22 counties are on the gas network. Burning natural gas will not be compatible with the 2050 target therefore the way in which we heat our homes, public and commercial buildings must change. 

Our building stock varies greatly in type, age, infrastructure, and the heating systems in them may be old and inefficient – so there is no silver bullet to make the energy transition happen.

 

Our multi-strand pathway to the energy transition

At Baxi Heating, we believe that a mix of different technologies will be required at scale to address the challenge.

 

Hydrogen

Decarbonisation of the gas grid where practicable through conversion to hydrogen.
