Question to the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero:
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, what recent discussions his Department has had with industry on recent data on the adequacy of global (a) production and (b) supply of (i) hydrotreated vegetable oil and (ii) other renewable liquid fuels for domestic heating usage in the UK.
The Government meets regularly with industry representatives to discuss levels of global production and supply of renewable liquid fuels.
The Government expects heat pumps will be the primary technology for decarbonising off-grid buildings. The Government recognises that not all off-grid properties will be suitable for a heat pump and there will be a role for alternative low carbon technologies where heat pumps cannot be used.
