National Heat Study Reports
We have separated the insights and analysis from the study into eight reports below. These reports provide a rigorous and comprehensive analysis of options for decarbonising heating and cooling in Ireland up to 2050.
There are seven major technical reports, each focusing on topics that form the overall analysis. The concluding report is called Net-Zero by 2050: Exploring Decarbonisation Options for Heating and Cooling in Ireland. It outlines the study's key insights across scenarios that achieve net-zero emissions from heating and cooling.
