No fossil fuels for heating in newbuilds from 2025?

Recommended Posts

In his Spring Statement the Chancellor has proposed that  fossil fuel heating in new builds will be banned from 2025. As usual the devil will be in the details.

So he is totally phasing out fossil fuel from our electricity grid by then is he?

 

Until that happens, my ASHP cannot claim to be 100% "renewable"

RANT RANT RANT.

 

By the way to all who read this topic, I plan on phasing out all Mushrooms from my shop bought vegan burgers by next Tuesday. If you want any more information on this endeavour you can get it directly from me at the Feckless Moron Show at the NEC next week. I'll have the booth right next to the Chancellor

IN either case there must be a financial incentive in it for him given his connection with several property companies. Surely THAT is a conflict of interest.

But the grid is moving in the direction of being fossil free (and has been for short intervals in Scotland recently) whereas if a new build got an oil or LPG boiler in 2026 it'd likely still be a fossil burner in 2036 or 2046.

Just been listening to an item on this on Radio 4 - lady with GSH pump was lamenting the lack of people to maintain/service.....I know how she felt given how long it has taken me to find someone to come and sort MVHR.

Out of general interest. How much as a very rough estimate would it cost to have a grid tied battery of lets say 1MWH?

As well as the electricity/CO2  question I was wondering about backup for new off grid development. Are they going to have to burn renewable biomass (wood) for heating backup?
