The Future of Liquid Fuel Heating

Recent research has confirmed that liquid biofuels are an affordable, green solution for homes that are oil heated in locations like Bangor and Belfast. The detailed analysis, resulting from a six month study of oil heated housing stock in the UK, was presented to a group of industry leaders. The findings reveal that 100% pure biofuel and a 30% blend of kerosene and FAME give the best results for the least cost.

OFTEC CEO Paul Rose commented: “This year’s conference couldn’t be more timely. Just last week, the UK became the first major nation to commit to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, replacing the original target of an 80% reduction on 1990 levels. The result is we must all now push harder to meet this new, tougher goal. “The liquid fuel heating industry has the potential to play a pivotal role in decarbonising rural homes. These research findings show that biofuels offer the most cost-effective solution for this hard-to-treat sector. Government and all sector players must now get behind biofuels and make this option a reality to secure a sustainable future for off-grid consumers and industry alike.”

Homes which use heating oil are often older, detached and in need of energy efficient upgrades. These include things like double glazing and loft and cavity wall insulation, with more extensive work covering the insulation of walls and floors.

Paul Rose added: “Now we are in no doubt that biofuels provide the future path for oil heating, the next step will be to develop ‘pathway options’ for government, detailing how and when industry will develop and roll out low carbon liquid fuels. Field trials will also begin to confirm the performance of biofuels and we will further step up our communication with government and stakeholders to secure recognition and support for this compelling solution.”
