unstar this property answer text <p>The Committee on Climate Change make clear in their report that they do not currently consider it credible for the UK to aim to reach net-zero emissions earlier than 2050.</p><p>We have considered their advice and legislated in line with it. The UK is the first major economy in the world to set a legally binding target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This world-leading target will bring to an end our contribution to climate change.</p><p>Having set this target, we are calling on other countries to similarly increase their ambition.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The testing and registration of new models of boiler by the Buildings Research Establishment (BRE) is not part of compliance with the Boiler Plus regulations.</p><p>In order to comply with the Boiler Plus regulations, the boiler unit must meet Energy-related Products (ErP) standards with a minimum ErP efficiency of 92%. Compliance is carried out by Notified Bodies, as defined by EU Directive 92/42/EEC: Hot Water Boilers. A list of Notified Bodies can be found at the following URL: <a href="https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fec.europa.eu%2Fgrowth%2Ftools-databases%2Fnando%2Findex.cfm%3Ffuseaction%3Ddirective.print%26refe_cd%3D92%252F42%252FEEC&amp;data=02%7C01%7CRosalyn.Tandy%40beis.gov.uk%7C6619f9a1216a41569f5d08d6e8c8cd56%7Ccbac700502c143ebb497e6492d1b2dd8%7C0%7C0%7C636952346463943182&amp;sdata=gssTJ8R70WjIZLq8bys1I8226ZrXkxW4OvQngs%2BMl1Y%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">http://ec.europa.eu/growth/tools-databases/nando/index.cfm?fuseaction=directive.print&amp;refe_cd=92%2F42%2FEEC</a></p><p>The BRE maintains the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) for the energy performance of homes. For the purposes of SAP, boiler efficiency values are derived using a calculation known as Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK (SEDBUK). This is the value that is recorded by BRE in the Product Characteristics Database.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK was the first major economy to legislate for a net zero target. The action we are taking in setting this target will continue our proud tradition of climate leadership.</p><p>The EU Member States that have targets for net zero greenhouse gas emissions in legislation are Sweden (by 2045) and the United Kingdom (by 2050). France is currently in the process of legislating for a 2050 net zero greenhouse target.</p><p>In addition, a range of Member States have adopted or are currently publicly considering adopting plans for net zero carbon or greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and in some cases have stated their intention is to legislate for a target. These include Denmark, Germany, and Portugal and Finland. Other Member States with plans to significantly reduce emissions by 2050 include the Netherlands, which has a law to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 95%, and Spain, which has a draft law proposing an at least 90% reduction (in both cases the reduction is compared to 1990).</p><p>The EU is also considering adopting a bloc-wide net zero 2050 target, with a large majority of Member States, including the UK, supporting a net zero EU target by 2050 at the June European Council this year. Through ratifying the Paris Agreement, the EU and its Member States have already committed to aiming for a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of greenhouse gases in the second half of the century, as set out in Article 4.1 of the Agreement.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government commissioned an assessment on the potential for low carbon hydrogen production with carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS). The assessment was conducted by the consultancies Element Energy and Jacobs.</p><p>Their report identified that for steam methane reformation, the current dominant UK hydrogen production technology, carbon capture rates of up to 90% could be achieved. It also states that next generation methane reformation technologies and further innovation could deliver increased capture rates and lower costs. To prove this, we launched a £20 million Hydrogen Supply Programme which aims to accelerate the development of low carbon bulk hydrogen supply solutions; the programme will provide real world evidence on the potential for increased capture rates.</p><p>In December 2018, we published the report ‘Clean growth: transforming heating’ which included a review of the evidence base on the potential carbon reductions if hydrogen produced from low carbon methods, including from natural gas combined with carbon capture utilisation and storage, is used to providing heating, including to homes, businesses and industry.</p>

These conditions include for example requirements on the preparation of test gases, test pressures, test room ventilation, ambient temperature, protection from solar radiation, physical mounting conditions, measurement conditions and tolerances, insulation of the test rig, establishment of thermal equilibrium, conditional control settings and several other similar items requiring closely controlled test room conditions.</p> more like this
