Decarbonising oil heated homes
The way we heat our homes must change for crucial climate change targets
to be met.
UK and Republic of Ireland (RoI) governments have indicated that cutting carbon emissions from oil-heated homes is an important priority. OFTEC fully supports this goal and is working with both governments to develop a solution.
However, we are increasingly concerned that the current policy direction means consumers will face unaffordably high costs for green heating systems. This means there is a significant risk that the progress needed to achieve net zero by 2050 will not be made.
You can read more on the following pages about our thinking, how to join our campaign for better, cheaper green heating solutions, and discover the potential of renewable liquid fuels.
