FIT for heat

Fit, with or without a glottal stop on the ‘t’, is another word that talks to our times. But as the Feed in Tariff, it is unlocking real excitement for renewable energy.

We are campaigning with co-operatives and others now for a Renewable Heat Incentive, to do the same for technologies like heat pumps and solar heat panels.

Heat is responsible for 47 per cent of UK emissions and 49 per cent of UK energy demand, yet we are the poorest performer on renewable heat in Europe, apart from Malta. Just one per cent of our total heat energy comes from renewables.

We are asking as many people as possible to show their support and sign up to the Fit for Heat petition to Treasury Chief Secretary, Danny Alexander http://www.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/heat-initiative
