In brief, this means that: 1 homes and other buildings need to become more energy efficient, so they need less energy to power them. And the supply of heat needs to be fully decarbonised, for example, by replacing gas boilers with heat pumps or low carbon heat networks. 2 transport needs to be decarbonised…

…. Heat decarbonisation is a priority for Suffolk. Depending on how much demand can be met by scoping heat networks, 300,000 or more homes in Suffolk may need heat pumps by 2030. This would represent a significant expansion of roll- out of this technology. Goal 2 – Improved energy efficiency of homes. Alongside roll-out of low carbon heating, homes will need to become more energy efficient…

…, especially as heat pumps only work effectively in buildings that are thermally efficient. Goal 3 – Behavioural change to use less energy. All of this will need to be supported by dissemination of information and engagement, so that homeowners and occupiers are aware of the need to transform how much heat is needed in their homes.
