📣📣 2 common misconceptions in (fairly decent) coverage of our #housing report.
1. We are only talking about NEW homes not connecting to gas grid. This is technology-neutral
2. Heat pumps do not cost 25k. That's a cost of retrofitting to EPC A / zero carbon homes spec... (1/5)
... which as we state, in practice you'd probably just not do. It's a thought experiment to show the benefit of designing more efficient ultra-low energy bill homes from the start for ~5k. A one time opportunity not to miss. (2/5)
For existing homes, we call for a heat strategy within 3 years which deploys low- and no-regret options and develops key options for remaining gas heated buildings (3/5)
From my perspective, we're not talking about banning gas hobs either. If you like to cook on gas there would be nothing to stop you. You would just have cleaner (and probably more efficient) heating. (4/5)
There are going to be some tough decisions in the coming years which will both reflect and shape what UK voters chose and value. We need constructive & informed public conversation. It is my sincere hope that we continue to work together collaboratively and positively. (5/5)
