Heating accounts for almost 50% of UK energy consumption and associated carbon dioxide emissions. Renewable heating technologies could therefore make a significant contribution towards carbon reduction and renewable energy targets. This POSTnote examines the available resources and technologies for supplying renewable heating and cooling in the UK and the policy options that could support their take up. This briefing does not consider insulation or changes in consumer behaviour that can affect the overall demand for heat.
