Carbon Connect launched the 'Future Heat Series' at a conference event in Parliament yesterday, to look at major transformations needed over coming decades to decarbonise how we heat homes and buildings.

Inquiry co-chair and Conservative Member of the Energy Climate Change Select Committee, Dan Byles said: "This is a policy area full of challenges and ripe with opportunities. It is really important that we have political consensus on long term energy and climate change policy, and that is why the Future Heat Series is such a healthy initiative."

Having launched its own Pathways for Domestic Heat project in 2012, which developed a plan to help the UK take the necessary steps towards becoming a decarbonised society, the Heating & Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC) agreed.
