April 2012
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Apr2012, Issue 447, p38
The article reports on the call of the British Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for views on how it can reduce emissions from heat used by businesses, industry and homes across the country. The department's heat strategy is aimed at developing policies to cut carbon dioxide emissions from heat to near zero by 2050. Heat reportedly accounts for 80% of industrial consumption in Great Britain. DECC also launched a national heat map to help councils and developers plan networks.
