Almost 45% of off grid businesses not likely to go green

Almost 45% of off grid businesses not likely to go green: Nearly 45% of non-domestic consumers (NDCs) in regions that are not connected to the gas grid in England & Wales, are less likely to set up a low carbon heating system if their current one fails.

This is on the authority of BEIS research investigating the opinions of non-domestic customers in these areas. It also indicates that just 5% of NDCs currently have a heat pump installed.

The research of over 300 energy & heating decision makers of organisations indicates more than a third would be inclined to consider setting up a low carbon heating technology if their current system did not operate properly.

Almost 71% of the respondents named the environment as the reason for taking into account the installation of a low carbon heating system.

The government hopes to eliminate the fossil fuel heating installations in new & existing buildings off the gas grid within the 2020s.

In accordance with official statistics, there are about 1.65 million non-domestic buildings in England & Wales.

Of these about 280,000 are situated in areas not connected to the gas grid and a lot of these use fossil fuels, as well as oil, liquefied petroleum gas & coal to heat their properties.
