Interim research findings comprising 10 maps that demonstrate important interactions between location and the green heat revolution that we urgently require
1 September 2021
As the IPCC recently made clear, climate change is no longer a problem of the future. And while it is a global challenge, it will require thousands or millions of local solutions. How we heat our homes is a critical part of the problem, as explored in our previous reports on domestic heating patterns and heat pump costs.
In this short report, we explore some of the most important interactions between location and the green heat revolution that we urgently require. In doing so, we consider the influence of our homes, people, network infrastructure and jobs on the types of solutions that may work in one place but not in another. With the future uncertain, we have focused on what makes places so different today. These differences are key inputs to our agent-based model which we’ll be launching in November 2021.
