The future of heat

The UK government has set, and the Irish Government has proposed, legally binding targets to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. And in addition, the UK has committed to cut emissions by 78% compared to 1990 levels by 2035.

Burning natural gas will not be compatible with the 2050 target therefore the way in which we heat our homes, public and commercial buildings must change.

Our building stock varies greatly in the type, age, infrastructure, and the heating systems in them may be old and inefficient - so there is no silver bullet to make the energy transition happen.

85%

Of UK homes are heated by natural gas

705,000

homes in 22 counties in Ireland are on the gas network

Our multi-strand pathway to the energy transition

At Baxi, we believe that a mix of different technologies will be required at scale to address the challenge.
