To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what comparative assessment his Department has made of the progress of each sector of the economy on the decarbonisation of heat supply; and whether that assessment will be used to inform the forthcoming heat policy roadmap.
In 2018 the Department published Clean Growth-Transforming Heating, a comprehensive review of the evidence available on the transition towards low carbon heat on each sector of the economy.
The Heat and Building Strategy, which is planned to be published later this year, will build on this evidence and set out the immediate actions we will take for reducing emissions from buildings. These actions include the deployment of energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating technologies as part of a wider programme of work on how we will make progress towards decarbonising all homes and buildings. We are developing policies to deliver low carbon heating in the 2020s and meet our climate targets, which will we consult on.
