ICOM welcomes first commercial boiler scrappage scheme of its kind in the world !
With an objective of reducing carbon and harmful emissions the Mayor of London, on the 30th July, launched the Cleaner Heat Cashback Scheme for London. Leading Industrial and Commercial Energy Association (ICOM) says the scheme is a positive step for businesses, carbon reduction and air quality.
Ross Anderson, Director, ICOM said;
“Non-domestic buildings in London are responsible for 44% of carbon emissions and commercial gas consumption (gas boilers) are responsible for 7% of London’s total NOx emissions. As transport is cleaned up, this percentage will rise, thereby bringing more attention to the sector.
There is widespread recognition that domestic heating requires decarbonisation but industrial and commercial energy efficiency also needs to be addressed. A commercial boiler scrappage scheme is an obvious and welcome move by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and one that will not only improve London’s air quality, it will also act as a catalyst to spur businesses on to consider additional energy efficiency improvements such as controls”
