Jan Rosenow is a principal and director of European Programmes at the Regulatory Assistance Project, a global team of energy experts. He sits on the board of the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy and the Coalition for Energy Savings, and is an Honorary Research Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute. Named one of the world’s top 25 energy influencers, he is special advisor to the BEIS Select Committee’s inquiry into decarbonising heating.
Arguing that electrification will increase carbon emissions is misguided, argues Jan Rosenow from the Regulatory Assistance Project. Instead, the focus must be on bringing more renewables online to make electricity production as clean as possible.
Energy experts that advocate heating homes with hydrogen rather than turning to deep renovation and building insulation as their first port of call will make the energy transition more expensive for everyone, says Jan Rosenow from the Regulatory Assistance Project.
