About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Reducing home carbon emissions is one of the biggest policy challenges facing the UK over the next decade.

Governments in the UK - including the Welsh and Scottish governments - will need to introduce new policies to minimise pollution and mitigate climate change.

Nesta has published a policy plan for home heating outlining the full set of policies we think are essential to set the UK on a path to fully decarbonising home heating over the next 25 years.

​Making informed decisions on decarbonisation means having access to credible and up-to-date information. To support our policy plan, this library pulls together supporting evidence from Nesta and beyond - including technical and social research, modelling and industry assessments - and provides clear and actionable recommendations for the best ways forward.
