Boris considers pushing back boiler ban to 2040 Aug 04, 2021
Government plans to ban all new homes from installing gas and oil boilers from 2025 may be delayed after reports Boris Johnsons is considering pushing the ban back to 2040.
This may be due to the costs that households across the UK will have to bear in the drive to deliver net zero by 2050.
If the ban were to be successful in phasing out the use of gas boilers then the most likely alternative would be ground source and air source heat pumps which currently cost more than traditional fossil fuel options.
Another alternative would be the use of hydrogen fired boilers, but currently they are hard to obtain and mostly unavailable to the domestic market.
However, the International Energy Agency, an intergovernmental organisation focused on shaping energy policies around the world, recently stressed that there is no place for new coal, oil or gas exploration/supply and called for a global ban on new fossil fuel boilers to be introduced by 2025 at the latest.
