Jeff House, Head of External Affairs at Baxi, has been appointed as the new chair of the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC) Policy Group.

The HHIC is a member organisation committed to driving, supporting and promoting the sustained growth of the UK domestic heating and hot water industry. 

House has over two decades’ industry experience with a strong background in legislation and policy for the residential and commercial heating sector. He regularly represents both Baxi and the wider industry at Government and trade body meetings, offering in-depth advice and analysis. 

As Policy Group chair, House will work with HHIC members to help shape the industry position and narrative relating to legislation. He commented: “I am delighted to be appointed as the HHIC Policy Group chair and look forward to helping drive the agenda forward. 

“Energy transition and building stock decarbonisation represent a huge challenge but also great opportunity for the industry. We are in the midst of a crucial time for policy development and there is a real need for a balanced and coherent narrative to ensure a just outcome for UK consumers.” 

Stewart Clements, Director at HHIC said: “HHIC are very pleased to welcome Jeff as the new chair of the Heating and Hotwater Policy Group. The group provides an unrivalled platform to review current and upcoming Government policy and regulation.

“Having worked with Jeff for some years I know he will lead the group effectively, and I wish him luck in his new role.”
