We will analyse the full range of heating, cooling and storage technologies in terms of maturity, viability, potential carbon savings availability, technology, business, infrastructure, policy, market readiness and commercial opportunity to enable technologies to be prioritised.
Different roadmaps will be produced covering domestic heating, retail energy use, thermal energy storage, low/medium temperature process heat, industrial and high temperature heat pumps, thermal transformers and storage. These will help direct and select the projects to be undertaken in Years 3-5 of the centre.
It is anticipated that the road maps will adapt the techniques developed for the Carbon Trust used to map refrigeration technology under the Refrigeration Road Map.
