    Posted By: Mike1Not sure (as nobody seems to have mentioned it) if anyone saw the headline about banning new homes from connecting to the gas grid by 2025, but the Committee on Climate Change's report including that recommendation can be found at https://www.theccc.org.uk/publication/uk-housing-fit-for-the-future/ and makes interesting reading.

    So, it seems that the Government are going to announce that they will 'bring forward, to 2023, the date by which new homes will need to be cosy without using gas heating' and 'aim to install 600,000 heat pumps a year by 2028' (among other plans - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-54981425).

    Which is interesting (as it wasn't completely clear that the 2025 ban was going ahead) and a step in the right direction (as the carbon intensity of the electricity supply has dropped so much http://www.greenbuildingforum.co.uk/newforum/comments.php?DiscussionID=16654).
