Archetypes of rural off-grid properties and their pathway to Net Zero

There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for homes off the gas grid, which are varied in age, size, fabric efficiency and geography.

The following reports outline analysis which compares the capital, operational and levelized costs of various low-carbon heating systems to determine which is the most financially attractive to households living in a variety of real homes across the UK.

The analysis compares archetype properties and assesses the relative suitability of each heating system. It also considers the ‘consumer journey’, addressing how the hassle of transitioning to a new heating system is also within consumer interest.
