Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) The Secretary of State must within 12 months of the passing of this Act consider whether it is—

(a) viable;

(b) cost effective; and

(c) desirable

to require all new boilers installed in domestic properties to be—

(a) (i) micro combined heat and power units; and

(ii) to include passive flue gas heat recovery devices.

(2) In the section—

“micro combined heat and power” means a combined heat and power unit designed for residential properties or other small buildings;

“passive flue gas heat recovery devices” means technology that can use the waste heat from condensing boilers in order to heat water.’.—(Dr Whitehead.)
