We have just published our Low Carbon Heating Strategy for 2022.

The document endeavours to lay the foundations for the de-carbonisation of heating, providing an insight to the various methods available and the possible impact this might have on the local grid.

Low carbon technologies are expected to play an important role in achieving the UK’s targets for improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions. To make the process simpler for installers, the Energy Networks Association created a combined application form which can be used for both electric vehicle charging points and heat pumps. 

You can access the combined application form below. For more information, please visit the Energy Networks Association.
