30% of carbon emissions are from heating

The decarbonisation of heating is one of the major unanswered challenges of the industrial strategy. Half of all the energy we use in the UK is for heating and it represents 30% of total UK carbon emissions. What’s more, 80% of the energy we use in our homes is for space or water heating and this still comes almost entirely from fossil fuels (gas and oil).

 

Tepeo was founded with the vision to develop low cost solutions to the decarbonisation of heat challenge. Our mission is to develop technology which can be the enabler for the migration of all UK homes from gas and oil boilers to zero carbon alternative heating systems without any additional costs to homeowners and while supporting the transition to a decentralised and decarbonised electricity grid.

Approximately 100MtCO2e of the UK's 500MtCO2e of annual carbon emissions are from space and water heating. The National Infrastructure Commission estimates we have to reduce this to 1/10 of the current level by 2050 to enable the UK to meet it's 2050 carbon emissions target. BEIS agrees...

 

WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?

80% of all the energy we use in our homes is for heating! Most of us have gas or oil boilers and as a result, the carbon emissions resulting from heating our homes is enormous.

There are lots of great new and innovative low carbon heating technologies out there, but at tepeo we don't think they tick all the boxes yet. 

So we're working on something new…

 

HOW ARE WE DOING THIS?

We have a growing cross-functional team of experienced engineers developing new zero carbon heating solutions to decarbonise the heating sector.

We're working on it.

Expect further announcements in late 2018.
