Decarbonised Electrified Heat
The UK has set an ambitious 2050 Net Zero Carbon target. A fundamental part of the Net Zero Carbon strategy is to change from gas heating systems to cleaner electrified heat. This course aims to equip those involved in forming energy strategies, planning developments, new building projects, refurbishment projects on how electrified heat can be correctly applied. Whilst a major focus of the course is on heat pumps the course also considers other options for electrified heating and what the components are for all these heating system options. The course also details building fabric considerations, electrical system requirements and addresses the issue of using electrified heat to generate hot water for domestic purposes.

This course covers a lot of bases very well for a wide range of professionals and levels of experience, preparing them for a future of low energy, low/zero carbon electric buildings. It rightly places a priority on assessing and addressing thermal performance before informing a range of space and water heating solutions, explaining how each are appropriate to their prospective settings, such that informed strategic decisions can be made. Overall a fantastic introduction to holistic sustainable building design principles and perfect for anyone looking to evolve their knowledge during this exciting time within our industry. - Craig Pilkington, Senior Building Physics and Sustainability Engineer, WSP
This course is perfect for what we need to do over the next few years in terms of decarbonising heat. I think this is the right course at the right time and is the direction we all need to take whether we are designing, building or maintaining our building stock. – Richard Kelly, Dublin City University
“I found this IET course to be a useful refresher of the concepts I already was familiar with. The course helped give me the confidence that I don't have any major gaps when it comes to the basics of electrified heat. Overall, the course provides a good foundation when it comes to understanding the electrification of heat landscape and key considerations related to electric heating." - BEIS Delegate
