Further support for HVO in Northern Ireland

With over 500,000 homes currently using heating oil in Northern Ireland, a new video has been released to communicate how straightforward it could be to dramatically cut CO2 emissions through the use of HVO as a near drop-in and, therefore, very cost-effective, replacement for kerosene.

David Blevings, NIOF, explains:
“Further to our November article, ‘NI Energy Strategy – an update’, we learn that OFTEC is promoting a video to local politicians ahead of the new NI Energy Strategy. The video shows how easy a transition to HVO will be for NI consumers and reinforces the immediate carbon reductions that are available for liquid fuel users.

“OFTEC has advised Government that the new strategy must be technology neutral and the inclusion of biofuels offers a seamless transition for existing liquid fuel users; a simple option for government to maximise carbon emission reductions in the off-grid sector at least cost for consumers with immediate effect.”

The video can be viewed here.
