FWIW I struggle to understand how the UK electrical networks will have any hope of coping with a plethora of electric cars, vans and trucks . then throw electric boilers into the mix and ... oops, lots of lights go out

We’ve added a lot of generating capacity with the thousands of wind turbines we’ve put up and energy efficiency has gone a fair way to offset the population growth.

Hi all, I saw my gas engineer yesterday and we talked it though. I had one sticking point which was the flue location, but I think we've found a solution.
Anyway I will be going with a gas solution. He also mentioned the likely move to hydrogen in the future.
Thanks for all your input.

H2 enhanced Nat Gas is on test now. The general principle is renewable energy is unpredictable and not always available when needed. Turbines etc can be used when not required for immediate energy use to produce liquified H2 which can be stored...a bit like an environmentally friendly battery. Nat gas will be enhanced at a rel. low % producing more heat and a cleaner burn from existing appliances.
There are a number of schemes but my money is on Ineos Chlor with Peel Ports in the long run. centralheatking
