Western Power Distribution has created an ambitious Low Carbon Heating Strategy to set out how they intend to connect customers to low carbon heating technologies (LCTs).

The strategy is set to allow for faster and more efficient heat pump connections to help reach the government’s goal of 600,000 heat pump connections a year by 2028, as well as introducing other LCTs that are currently uncommon in UK homes such as thermal storage, combined heat and power, hydrogen and solar district heating plants. Their work will be informed by information supplied by Sero and POBL Housing Association, which assesses the energy use of 250 new build homes equipped with a full range of LCTs.

More information on the strategy can be found here.
