Boris Johnson is expected to unveil his long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy next week.

Proposals are believed to include a firm date of 2035 to completely prohibit the installation of new gas boilers. Meanwhile, building firms have already been given a 2025 cut-off for fitting conventional gas boilers in new-build homes.

The strategy unveiling will come just ahead of the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow, where the Prime Minister will be keen to prove the UK’s commitment to hitting its target for net-zero emissions by 2050.

Homeowners could be offered a £5,000 ‘boiler upgrade grant’ if they choose to switch to green alternatives early. The devices, however, cost around £10,000 and need to be installed in the ground. Concerns have been raised about their effectiveness in older buildings and blocks of flats.
