‘Installation of new gas boilers should be banned from 2025 to help the UK meet its net zero goal’

The Confederation of British Industry and the University of Birmingham suggest the government should mandate that all new domestic boiler installations must be hybrid or hydrogen-ready

The installation of new gas boilers should be banned from 2025 if the UK doesn't want to miss its climate targets.

That's according to a report by a commission led by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the University of Birmingham, which suggests the government should mandate that after 2025, all new domestic boiler installations must be hybrid or hydrogen-ready.

The commission also suggests the government should create a low carbon heating obligation to stimulate the demand for air source or ground source heat pumps, hydrogen boilers or heat networks.
