Gas Heating Research

What is the future of gas in buildings – both for appliances and low carbon gases, and how can you best capture the opportunities and respond to the threats?

"To meet long term climate targets, the energy use of buildings must change. Space and water heating are key building energy loads that must be decarbonised significantly compared to today.

Electrification will play a role, but there are a host of opportunities for gas: greater use of high efficiency gas heating technologies; and growth of decarbonised gases, including hydrogen."
Steven Ashurst, Gas Heating expert
  • How are policy and regulations affecting gas-based heating and where are they going?
  • How much traction are high efficiency products getting, where, and with what propositions? What's the outlook?
  • Will technology development and innovation unlock new opportunities?
  • What's the role for natural gas, low carbon gases and hydrogen in a decarbonising, more electrified future?
  • What approaches with hydrogen for heat are emerging, and what ways forward will have the most success?

Delta-EE's Gas Heating Service provides data, insight, analysis and opinion to enable you to develop the best approach and to capture for high efficiency gas appliances and low carbon gases across Europe.
