The heating sector is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in most countries, and in the UK in particular it accounts for around 20% of carbon emissions. Therefore, various scenarios have been proposed to decarbonise heating. However, studies in this direction do not typically consider the tight interactions with the electricity and gas sector in a multi-energy system context, nor the required geographical and time resolution. To bridge this gap, a novel high-resolution spatial and temporal integrated electricity-heat-gas model has been developed to assess the impact of low-carbon heating options on electricity and gas transmission networks with the consideration of heat demands r..View full abstract
