Government urged to bring in clean heat incentives

Business and civil society groups have urged the government to introduce a Fair Heat Deal to make moving from fossil fuel boilers to clean heat pumps affordable for all.

The proposed deal would make heat pumps and insulation free for the fuel poor, stimulating the heat pump market, accelerating a reduction in technology and installation costs. It will also generate jobs and reduce energy consumption.

Jessica Tan, managing director of OVO Smart Home, said: “We need to think as widely as possible about the incentives needed to switch away from gas boilers. We also need to stimulate the training and employment opportunities for the vast army of people needed to install zero-carbon heat up and down the country.”
