Around 23 million homes are currently connected to the gas grid in the UK. But the government wants all homes in the UK to have phased out gas-fired boilers by 2035. Homes currently account for about 17% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions, and this fossil fuel-based way of heating our homes is responsible for much of it.
