We recently presented a webinar with the team at Installer Magazine as part of the Net Zero Festival.
The event was specifically designed for installers and heating engineers wanting to know more about bioLPG to enable them to provide expert guidance, and the most suitable heating options to their clients.
We talked about the level of investment being made in the bioLPG and LPG industry over the next five years demonstrating just how much potential there is for this thriving, buoyant industry.
LPG is ultimately a transitional fuel. It is paving the way for bioLPG which could be the future of the industry. BioLPG is a renewable fuel made from a variety of different sources including waste streams, biogenic feedstocks and even used cooking oil. It is efficient, versatile and most importantly it is a drop-in solution. This means that homeowners will not need to change infrastructure in order to lower their carbon footprint.
From the recent research carried out in 2021 we know cost is a barrier to homeowners wishing to reduce their carbon footprint. They simply can’t afford the renovation costs required to install technologies such as heat pumps which cost up to £18,000 to fit and install for over 227,000 off-grid homes. Homeowners do want to make changes to their carbon usage though, and need the options available to enable them to make these choices in a way which is possible from a practicality and financial point of view.
Age and fabric of the home, household energy needs and even geographical location need to be considered when making recommendations about which heating methods are most suitable for a home. Choice is so important and from research carried out, we know 87% of people want to be able to choose the right heating system for their circumstances.
Rural housing stock is extremely varied as is the age and fabric, character and heritage. Even homes which aren’t listed will have features that homeowners don’t want to lose. All of these points need to be considered when making recommendations about heating.
The Installer magazine Webinar provided an excellent opportunity for us to discuss the benefits of bioLPG and LPG, share some of the recent research and feedback from customers living in rural areas and explain why these versatile products should be a serious consideration for installers wishing to guide their customers and enable them to reduce their carbon footprint.
