Turning renewable heat into a key commodity
A new white paper titled Energy: it's the heat, stupid! recognises heat as a valuable commodity with its own market. The paper examines the energy requirements of the UK and looks into possible renewable options. It concludes that developing renewable heat in particular would help meet rising UK energy demands and help replace an aging energy infrastructure. It claims that large-scale renewable heat production, such as heat produced by geothermal plants, can be achieved with focused government support, and the resulting supply will be essential to safeguarding Britain's energy future.
