We are at a tipping point in the heating transition. The convergence of four market mega trends in the early 2020s is creating strong conditions for the decarbonisation of heat to finally accelerate in existing buildings.
- Policies, backed by committed funding, are emerging across Europe to drive growth in lower carbon heating systems – and are already impacting end-user decision-making about heating systems
- Public awareness of the need for decarbonisation is accelerating
- Innovative technology solutions are emerging which are increasingly well-suited to existing buildings
- New business models like Heat as a Service are rapidly evolving, changing the way heat is sold – and strengthening the decarbonisation opportunities
