– 1 min read

In line with the targets set at the COP26 summit, the UK Government is determined to make a change and be at the forefront of it. 

Some ways the Government aims to make changes, include: 

  • providing cleaner power for the domestic sector, with full decarbonisation by 2035 through the continuous rollout of renewable energy and advanced nuclear and storage technologies 
  • ramping up the production of hydrogen as a source of clean fuel, potentially being used in domestic boilers 
  • ensuring new heating appliances in buildings are non-fossil fuel by 2035, and offering grants to households for boiler upgrades and heat pumps – with the aim of 600,000 installations by 2028 
  • ending the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, and aiming for all cars to produce zero emissions by 2035 
  • tightening of energy efficiency standards for existing buildings and new developments  
  • upgrading current homes to at least an EPC band C by 2030 where practical through fabric improvements and installing new energy systems  
  • supporting the creation of 175,000 green jobs by 2030, and 240,000 by 2035 
  • and investing £22 billion in research and development (R&D) and innovation.
