Issue for Business: We largely agree with the identified barriers and other findings. We agree that it is important to better understand the barriers businesses face in lowering their emissions including those associated with process heat. Process heat has been identified as the second largest source of energy-related emissions, just behind transport. Better understanding barriers that prevent firms from investing in energy efficiency improvements or from switching to renewable alternatives is a good initial step. The paper recognises the bundle of complex issues which must be resolved to achieve a successful transition to a low carbon economy.
