Our homes have one of the largest carbon footprints of any in the developed world. Some 30% of our entire national energy usage is within our homes, the majority used to provide warmth. And almost all this heat is still provided by one of the fossil fuels of the past.

To create a more prosperous world for future generations, Britain needs to urgently move away from using fossil fuels in its homes. We need to shift to clean, green energy, particularly wind and solar, which have the potential to take on a far bigger role in heating our homes.

To achieve this wind and solar need to be paired with another technology that can smooth the gaps when the weather means wind or solar produce less than is required.

The safest, most affordable and reliable way to get fossil fuels out of our homes is the electrification of heat. Progress is being made, for example with improved immersion heater technology and ground and air source heat pumps. But these either remain overly inefficient, expensive...
Our homes have one of the largest carbon footprints of any in the developed world. Some 30% of our entire national energy usage is within our homes, the majority used to provide warmth. And almost all this heat is still provided by one of the fossil fuels of the past.

To create a more prosperous world for future generations, Britain needs to urgently move away from using fossil fuels in its homes. We need to shift to clean, green energy, particularly wind and solar, which have the potential to take on a far bigger role in heating our homes.

To achieve this wind and solar need to be paired with another technology that can smooth the gaps when the weather means wind or solar produce less than is required.

The safest, most affordable and reliable way to get fossil fuels out of our homes is the electrification of heat. Progress is being made, for example with improved immersion heater technology and ground and air source heat pumps. But these either remain overly inefficient, expensive or require significant amounts of external space.

What we need are the means to store this renewable energy as heat when it is not required, to be used when it is. Our zero carbon Heat Battery system provides a typical UK home with all the reliable, dependable and affordable heat energy it needs. Allied with the latest smart grid technology home owners automatically recharge their heat battery when electricity costs are low and renewable energy generators can make more efficient use of their assets, further reducing overall costs.

With a million heat batteries deployed across the UK, we would have the means to store five times over the energy produced by the UKs largest power station.

Our Heat Battery system, the world’s most efficient and technologically advanced, requires no subsidy and over a 20 year period is more affordable than any alternative. With no moving parts it is low maintenance, non-flammable and non-corrosive.

Looking to the future, as wind and solar grow and Britain becomes more dependent on them, it will be ever more important to have such safe, reliable, zero carbon technology in UK homes.
