One quarter of monitored social housing properties recorded winter temperatures below World Health Organisation standards for more than 80% of winter, new research shows.
What if you could pay to heat your home the same way you pay to stream music? You can with heat-as-a-service.
Heat pumps are the technology of choice for heating and cooling buildings more efficiently and with fewer carbon emissions than furnaces and air conditioning.
District heating can recycle waste heat and pump it where it’s needed.
Out of the existing 29 million homes in the UK, only eight million meet the highest energy standards.
Heat pumps use electricity to transfer warmth from outside to inside a house.
This winter will see more outdoor socialising than ever before.
Hydrogen is feted as the key to a dynamic green economy. But is it the best choice for decarbonisation in all cases?
Many Americans had trouble paying their energy bills before COVID-19, and the current recession is making the problem worse.
Energy efficiency and electrification should lead the effort to decarbonise society, not hydrogen.
Electricity is only one part of the green energy puzzle we need to solve.
Net zero energy buildings produce at least as much energy as they use. Designing whole net zero campuses and communities takes the energy and climate benefits to a higher level.
Larger homes with fewer occupants have a bigger energy and heating demand.
Britain’s electricity supply is getting greener but the burning question remains over how to decarbonise heating.
Households generate a large share of national greenhouse gas emissions and can take steps to reduce them.
Britain greets a new decade with substantially cleaner electricity, but challenges lie ahead to decarbonise its transport and heating.
Australian houses are not designed and built for the realities of climate change
Everyone has a different ideal temperature at any given time. It could be more comfortable to monitor people’s body temperatures and adjust heating and cooling in response.
Energy justice is a social issue, and by leaving it up to vulnerable people to sort it out for themselves, we as a society risk making it even worse.
The legacy of the dirtiest of fuels – coal – has the potential to deliver a low carbon energy future.
