Examining how low carbon cooking appliances can help in reducing CO2 emissions

Although cooking appliances currently have very limited inclusion in the building regulations, with no mention in Part L1A, they do figure in the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6, but without an officially sanctioned method to reflect efficiency savings.

This publication examines the part that low carbon cooking appliances can play in reducing CO2 emissions from new and existing homes. It considers the use of hobs and ovens using a variety of technologies and fuels including electricity, gas and bio-gas. The report also provides information on consumer likes, dislikes and perceptions, and discusses consumer preferences on the type of appliance to be installed.
