VIRTUAL SUSTAINABILITY FORUM

The path to becoming carbon neutral and the role of electric heating
With ambitious targets set for net zero carbon emissions, what does this mean for businesses and how can they achieve it?
You might think you know electric heating but with a radically decarbonised electricity grid and advances in technology this is becoming the low carbon option. With grants available to switch from oil or gas heating or replace older less efficient electrical heating, now is the time to look at this again.
