star this property answer text <p>The test conditions in labs for domestic boilers assume steady state operation, weighted by full and part power measurements. The energy ratings given to boilers are therefore intended to provide a fair basis for comparison of the energy efficiency of different models. The wide variation in the energy efficiency of buildings that boilers are installed in and in user behaviours makes it difficult to consistently test boiler efficiency in real life conditions.</p> more like this

These include required fuel characteristics, control mode settings, etc. to ensure that the test results are repeatable and comparable. Limitations are stated, for example section 8.1.2.5 prescribes the requirement for tests to take place under thermal equilibrium conditions, with precautions taken to prevent thermostats or adjustable controls or an electronic temperature control system operating and affecting the gas rate, unless necessary for the specific test being conducted.</p> more like this

This project is being delivered and supported by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Engineering and Physical Sciences, and the Natural Environment Research Councils.</p><p> </p><p>E-infrastructure, including supercomputing, is also a critical strand within UKRI’s national research and innovation infrastructure roadmap programme. This is seeking to increase our understanding of the UK’s current capabilities and future requirements with a final report expected later in 2019. We want to ensure that future investments in High Performance Computing will deliver benefits across research and innovation, including to tech start-ups and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises. (SMEs). The Government will be working with UKRI and Tech UK on UKRI’s e-infrastructure strategy which will be engaging with tech-SMEs on how they can access high-performance computing for the benefit of their businesses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Of the variables referred to, those that impact the efficiency of the boiler itself are the heat distribution system, comprising emitters, pipes and pumps and the user controls.</p><p> </p><p>Condensing boiler efficiency is typically improved by a lower water return temperature. The design, efficacy and maintenance of the heat distribution system can impact this temperature. For example, an undersized system will require a higher flow temperature making it more difficult to achieve a low return temperature.</p><p> </p><p>User controls such as timers and thermostats can impact when the boiler turns on and off. The rate of this (cycling) can also impact the efficiency of the boiler with rapid cycling being potentially detrimental to efficiency. User controlled radiator valves can affect the flow rate through the system also impacting flow and return temperatures and cycling affecting boiler efficiency.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Local authorities have powers under the Building Act 1984 to enforce the building regulations, including fixed building services such as boiler installations, and have work altered or removed that does not comply. The Building Regulations and Gas Safe rules of registration require that Gas Safe registered businesses comply with their geographical area regulations by notifying any relevant appliances they have installed to the Local Authority. Failure to comply can result in disciplinary action and can ultimately result in traders being struck off the Gas Safe Register.</p><p> </p><p>An initial assessment of Boiler Plus planned for later this year will reveal if there are significant instances of non-compliance. To date, no evidence has come to light to suggest gas boilers below 92% ErP are being installed in English homes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Leaving the EU with or without a deal will not affect our commitment to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 13. We remain a signatory to the Paris Agreement; will honour our commitments to provide climate finance; are co-leading with Egypt the Resilience and Adaptation theme at the UN Climate Action Summit in September; and we have bid to host COP26 in 2020 in partnership with Italy. Underpinning all of this is our domestic ambition, which will continue to be enshrined in law through the Climate Change Act 2008. Building on our Clean Growth Strategy, on 12th June, the Government laid draft legislation to set a new net zero greenhouse gas emissions target for the UK, to be delivered by 2050.</p><p>The UK’s first Voluntary National Review (VNR) will be published shortly. The VNR will review UK action both domestically and internationally in support of Goal 13. It will also outline key challenges and next steps, recognising that while significant progress is being made, there is more work to do.</p>
