About this webainr

During this webinar BEAMA will be discussing the practical actions that need to be at the centre of Government strategies for heat decarbonisation, electrification and home energy efficiency for a practical, ‘no-regrets’ pathway to net zero. The key is to make our homes ready for the future so that they can connect to, and benefit from, the new energy infrastructure.
