This strategy aims to decarbonize the UK's buildings heating sector by replacing gas boilers with heat pumps and increasing the rate of retrofits. It is based on five core principles:
1. To take a whole-buildings and whole-system approach to minimise costs of decarbonisation
2. Fostering innovation
3. Accelerate action now by prioritizing buildings with low energy performance through retrofiting
4. Providing the right long-term signals through regulatory changes
5. Supporting the transition for vulnerable households
