In Government, Boilers

The government announced recently its consultation on improving boiler standards and efficiency.

The CIPHE would like to share the details of the consultation that seeks views on a range of topics, including:

  • Proposals to improve boiler and heating system efficiency through improvements to minimum standards
  • Proposals to mandate that from 2026 all newly-installed gas boilers are ‘hydrogen-ready’
  • The potential role of gas boiler-electric heat pump hybrids in heat decarbonisation in the 2020s and 2030s

These proposals aim to reduce domestic gas consumption, thereby lowering consumer bills and carbon emissions, improving our energy security, and preparing for the transition to low-carbon heating.
