Leading boiler manufacturer, Baxi Heating, has promised to revolutionise the way we heat our buildings. The announcement coincides with the Prime Minister’s 10-point plan for a Green Revolution and places Baxi at the heart of the ‘heating transformation’, to achieve the UK’s climate targets.
Karen Boswell OBE, Managing Director of Baxi Heating, comments: “Future generations will judge us by our actions. Our pledge is to be carbon neutral by 2030, and to phase-out of carbon intensive heating by ensuring every product we make from 2025 will work with low carbon energy.”
The company has committed to a portfolio of cleaner products, that will work with low carbon fuels by 2025.
Baxi plays a role in the residential and commercial heating markets, providing heating and hot water solutions to the UK. As such, it has a huge responsibility to drive positive change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Heating is responsible for 37% of the UK’s contribution to greenhouse gases. To decarbonise existing homes by 2050, all new heating installations must be low carbon by 2035. New builds will also have to have low carbon heating from the mid-2020s.
Baxi Heating is committed to delivering low carbon solutions to homes and businesses and driving down costs through product evolution – building on its ambition to make the world a better place for future generations.
As part of the Green Industrial Plan, the Prime Minister has committed to create the first hydrogen heated neighbourhood by 2023, the first village by 2025 and the first entire town by the end of the decade. Baxi Heating and BDR Thermea Group intend to be at the vanguard of this mission and are testing one of the UK’s first hydrogen boilers. They have been working closely with government to trial hydrogen heating technologies. Baxi Heating has been involved in the UK’s hydrogen taskforce, Hy4Heat, HyDeploy and User projects.
It has recently introduced a new range of low-carbon heat pumps, supporting a UK wide aspiration for 600,000 annual heat pump installations by 2028.
Karen Boswell continues: “It’s our vision to be a sustainable leader in the heating and hot water sector. We have a responsibility to tackle climate change not only for ourselves, but for future generations.
“Delivering greener heating systems is fundamental to achieving net zero. The bottom line is that our customers desire sustainable, affordable and reliable warmth – particularly during this period of economic uncertainty.”
