Smart Systems and Heat
Heating accounts for 37% of  total UK carbon emissions, with how we heat our homes and buildings responsible for around 20%. To achieve our Net Zero targets, the UK’s 27 million households will need to rapidly adopt new low carbon heat solutions through the 2020s and 2030s. Yet digital technology has the potential to make low carbon heat a better, more consumer-friendly option for all UK households.
