International Comparisons of Heating, Cooling and Heat Decarbonisation Policies
Business Energy and Industrial Strategy | Published March 21, 2017 - Deadline April 18, 2017
The UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) wishes to conduct a high level evidence review of current international practice for meeting heating and cooling demand and current policies and strategies for heating and cooling decarbonisation. The project sits within a wider scheme of work being undertaken by BEIS to consolidate and review the evidence base relating to different approaches to decarbonising heat, strengthen our capability to model and assess the impacts of those approaches, and better understand the barriers, risks and uncertainties involved. This evidence review project will contribute to building a broader knowledge base within BEIS of how other countries are coping with similar challenges around heating/cooling decarbonisation and opportunities for international collaboration and learning. The project is split into two parts, though the results are to be presented in one report. All tenders should address the aims and requirements of PART 1 (high level overview of heating and cooling systems in developed economies as well as heat/cooling decarbonisation policies and strategies). PART 2 (in-depth analysis of specific case studies) is optional and should only be included in tenders where a compelling case can be made.
