Worcester Bosch has published a white paper focused on decarbonisation, titled Fuelling the Future.
Working with the Government, Worcester Bosch is determined to continue its mission to decarbonise home heating in the UK – and this white paper sets out their vision in the coming The white paper discusses a number of themes including hydrogen-ready boilers, heat pumps and hybrid systems, that will all contribute to a cleaner environment.
Worcester Bosch is also hosting a virtual tour of its factory for the All Party Parliamentary Group of MPs for Hydrogen. The company will be giving them a real insight into how hydrogen heating could become a reality in the UK.
Speaking in the White Paper’s Executive Summary, Worcester Bosch CEO Carl Arntzen said: “As a market leader, we have had the privilege of inputting both directly and with the industry to assist in the practical adoption of the Government’s ‘Net Zero’ carbon target by 2050.
“We think it is essential that as an industry we need to roll up our sleeves and start putting plans into action, which is why our own experts have been appraising all of the various technologies that can contribute towards a net-zero future.
“As a manufacturer of all heating technologies, we are also very aware that there is unlikely to be one singular answer for all applications and consequently, we have been investigating how best certain heat generating sources may be more suited to certain property types over others.
“It is clear that a wholesale change, such as replacing the current single boiler the majority of us use today, with say a multi-household district heating solution, could be a huge cost both in infrastructure and deployment, and this will undoubtedly have an impact on UK consumers.
“So, we are aiming in our advice to be as practical as we can while being agnostic on the technology chosen.
“With this paper, we aim to give an honest, impartial and technology agnostic view on the benefits, advantages and suitable applications for the UK’s future domestic heating requirements. The heating industry has some very strong opinions and voices on the most suitable heating source and does not always present an aligned position to Government.”
