Managing climate change involves both mitigation (managing causes) and adaptation (responding to change). In the UK, reducing carbon emissions from our 29 million homes is an important aspect of plans to mitigate climate change through achieving net zero carbon emissions. In this video, we team up with energy transition and green economy expert Dr Sarah Knuth to explore the challenges of achieving this. We discover how solutions depend on making coordinated, large-scale changes on how we power and heat communities, as well as the actions we take as individual households.
