The proposed work will be an evidence review that uses systematic approaches to identify and filtering evidence relevant to the research questions. It is required because although there is existing literature relating to the topic, there is currently no up-to-date review collating the evidence on the relationship between heating, energy efficiency, smart technologies and health in a way that meets our requirements. There appears to be no review which explicitly examines the differences of heating technologies’ impacts on health, although there are lots of studies looking at the health impacts of a specific type of heating system.
This research will provide an updated evidence base on this issue, which will be available for use by a wide range of policy teams including teams responsible heat policy, fuel poverty policy, retrofit policy and smart energy policy.
