edie launches new business guide on net-zero carbon heating

The guide is free to download for edie users

The new edie Explains guide has been released with support from Centrica Business Solutions and answers key questions that will help businesses move towards net-zero carbon heating.

What is net-zero carbon heating? Why is net-zero carbon heating important? What are the different forms of net-zero carbon heating? What are the business benefits of net-zero carbon heating? This explains guide answers all of these questions and more.


Currently, fossil fuels dominate heating, so transforming how heat is generated in both homes and businesses is an urgent challenge. According to National Grid, around 85% of households use gas for heating, making it one of the most important sectors to decarbonise.

Whether your organisation is looking to deliver key infrastructure work across the UK or hoping to decarbonise the heat it uses for its operations, this guide lays out all the key considerations and recommendations.

The guide comes with an accompanying industry viewpoint from Centrica Business Solutions’ product manager for heat solutions Luke Bannar-Martin, who explains how the switch to low-carbon heating can be made even during this challenging economic climate.

“Change is coming fast in the form of electric heat pumps – a proven, scalable technology that provides heating from 35°C to 130°C, together with cooling. They can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 80%,” Bannar-Martin said.

“You can couple heat pumps with other onsite generation technologies to improve performance, e.g. in combination with solar PV, heat pumps become carbon neutral, whereas adding Combined Heat and Power (CHP) can enhance heat generation and reduce costs.”
