Rural UK homes could be using bio-heat within five years

October 31, 2017 |

In the UK, many rural homes could be heated by vegetable oil within the next five years, according to a new industry report on the future of rural heating.

Currently, oil heating is one of the most popular choices for those living off the gas grid and a new report from OFTEC, the trade association for the oil heating industry, suggests these homes could switch to a renewable alternative, such as a vegetable oil blend, by as early as 2022. This green ‘biofuel’ could play an important role in reducing carbon emissions from these homes and provide a long term, sustainable solution for rural heating.
