Greater electrification of building services will be central to global decarbonisation efforts.

Greater electrification of building services will be central to global decarbonisation efforts, according to a report from the research company BloombergNEF (BNEF).

It concluded that the harnessing of lower carbon grid electricity would “transform how we power our transport and heat our buildings”.

BNEF’s head of global policy analysis Victoria Cuming said that electrification “could make a huge contribution to the achievement of governments’ emission-reduction targets by exploiting the low-carbon transition already underway in the power generation sector”.

Direct changes would also see massive growth of electric heating systems in buildings, while indirect changes would include electrolysis using renewable electricity to produce hydrogen that can also be used to heat buildings.
