What is Heat?
An interesting juxtaposition of headlines on edie last week:
On Friday: Government wants tips on ‘renewable’ heating
Maybe Jo Williams, the academic in question, had an extraordinarily fast response to her ‘blast’! Joking aside, if you do want to contribute to the Government’s heat query you can at the BERR website here. I may just point out that the total heating demand is roughly the same as the amount of waste heat from electricity generation (although unfortunately the UK’s population isn’t concentrated around Drax, Ferrybridge etc).
Fortunately you don’t have to answer the rather tricky question at the top of the BERR webpage: “What is Heat?”. Answers on the back of a postcard/in the comments, please – the winner will be the wittiest, not the most pedantic.
