Improving boiler standards and efficiency

The government has launched a consultation, where they seek views on a range of topics, including:

  • proposals to improve boiler and heating system efficiency through improvements to minimum standards
  • proposals to mandate that from 2026 all newly installed gas boilers are ‘hydrogen-ready’
  • the potential role of gas boiler-electric heat pump hybrids in heat decarbonisation in the 2020s and 2030s

These proposals aim to reduce domestic gas consumption, thereby lowering consumer bills and carbon emissions, improving our energy security, and preparing for the transition to low-carbon heating.”

They are seeking views from consumers, installers, manufacturers and wider industry.

The IET Board of Trustees has decided to respond to the following consultation and will accept responses from IET members including Member, Fellow, Honorary Fellow, Student, and Associate. Please provide your membership number with your consultation response.

The IET is seeking to respond to the consultation and would welcome your views and comments on the questions posed.

Please respond no later than 9am on 23 February 2023 to Rick Hartwig with "Improving boiler standards and efficiency" in the subject line.
