Trade body suggests delaying Future Homes Standard to 2028

The Independent Networks Association (INA) has called for the implementation of the Future Homes Standard to be coordinated with planning and regulatory milestones for electricity and gas networks. Executive director Nicola Pitts told Utility Week it should possibly be delayed until the end of the RIIO2 price controls for electricity distribution in 2028, giving networks time to establish how flexibility from heat pumps can be used to reduce their impact on the power grid.
