Abstract This report is an outcome of the Energy-PIECES (Energy Policy Insights from Early Career Events and Secondments) project aimed at improving the engagement of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) related research with energy policy. As part of this project, a seven-week secondment with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) focused on exploring the social dimensions of heat decarbonisation in cooking appliances, specifically moving away from gas cookers and hobs. This report builds on interviews with BEISs long-term heat strategy experts and key external stakeholders. It also includes review of secondary data on trends in cooking appliance use and an annotated bibliography of literature on the social implications of heat decarbonisation and sustainable food transitions more broadly that can inform policy.
