Transitioning to green homes and buildings report

We are proud to have formed an alliance with the Sustainable Homes and Buildings Coalition. Formed by the NatWest Group, this partnership has been put in place to guide homeowners through the confusion and help them make greener home heating choices with confidence. This in turn will support you, the installer, and help the nation move towards a more sustainable future.

The recently launched ‘Home is where the Heat is’ report speaks to the consumer, giving them clear information on the challenge, the technology on offer and much more.

Characteristics of property types in the UK

Characteristics of property types in the UK

With a wide variety of property types, the report illustrates clearly that there is no one-size fits all solution.

Example within the report:

Pre-1919 Victorian mid-terrace solid walls typically feature solid brick walls – many of these properties remain uninsulated.

Modern semi-detached has strong water pressure but typically no water storage or tanks present.

Customer types and their journey to greener homes

Customer types and their journey to greener homes

To bring customer mindsets to life, the report documents different pains and gains customers have when greening their homes and how different property types influence this.

Example within the report:

The Shahs’ own their pre-1919 Victorian mid-terrace property. With their gas boiler coming to the end of its life, along with planned refurbishment, they want to know more about greener heating systems.

Hydrogen

Hydrogen

A hydrogen-ready boiler is a gas-fired heating boiler which is capable of burning either natural gas or pure (100%) hydrogen.

Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps

A heat pump is a relatively new technology in the UK although they are widely used in Scandinavia and many parts of Europe where there is an abundance of renewably sourced electricity.

Hybrid Systems

Hybrid Systems

A hybrid heating and hot water system is a combination of two or more technologies generating heat to provide heating and hot water to the home or building.
