Vaillant Launches White Paper to Combat the Misconceptions in the Industry

The future of heating is currently a hot topic, from government policy to national news and online updates. To cut through the chatter and present the facts in one place, we have unveiled our “Decarbonising Home Heating in the UK” White Paper. The paper gives a balanced overview of the mix of heating technologies, and the support available to ensure installers and specifiers are able to make the most of all opportunities when looking at decarbonising the housing stock.

Klaus Jesse, Managing Director of Vaillant says “The majority of the UK’s housing stock is ageing and around 80% of these properties will still be in use in 2050’s. This is why the decarbonisation of heat in homes is essential to achieving the Government’s target of net zero by 2050. Low carbon heating system solutions are available today with more being developed for the future. However, it is clear there is no ‘silver bullet’ and there will need to be a multi-technology approach to help the UK reach net zero.”

Mark Wilkins, Technologies and Training Director from Vaillant adds “The progression to net zero will not happen overnight. There are 26 million homes in the UK, so during this decade trials and tests are fundamental to achieve our decarbonisation goals. With the recent announcement from the Government on the Hydrogen Strategy outlining a longer-term timeframe for the roll out of this new fuel, it is clear that a mix of technologies will be needed to help reduce emissions, especially in the immediate future. Whilst we are working with the industry to bring hydrogen solutions for home heating, those needing to start their decarbonisation journey should turn to heat pump technology which is very much here now.

“Giving clear information of where, how, and in the case of hydrogen, when, each technology is best recommended, our newly released White Paper highlights the essential information and reiterates the support available from Vaillant for those wanting to know more about each technology.”
