Off Gas Grid Industry contact group

Government is working with the off grid industry towards phasing out installation of high carbon fossil fuel heating in buildings off the gas grid in the 2020s.

This government / industry contact group has been created to:

  • draw on insight
  • share early policy proposals
  • ensure the off grid industry has a direct route to engage with government

The role and membership of this group will evolve as the policy framework continues to develop.

Currently the off grid market in rural areas is dominated by heating oil, and so one of government’s first goals for this group is to work with the oil industry to develop the ways of creating growth and opportunity as we transition towards lower carbon forms of heating.
