The UK heating system

This study applies the Multi Level Perspective (MLP) on the UK heat system. It combines niche and regime analyses to assess the feasibility of a transition in the UK heat system. For this, the following niches are considered: heat pumps, smart heating controls and meters, small-scale biomass, solar thermal, district heating, and low-energy retrofits. The regime analysis is broken down into heating and housing.
