Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
ok, I've fixed the heating thing in my version of the model. Click on the colourful donuts in the bottom-left corner of the options, to change the heating fuel mixes for domestic (left) and commercial (right) heating.

To decarbonise heating, electrify it (some mix of resistance heating, air-source heat pumps, and ground-source heat pumps), and decarbonise electricity. Or switch people to solid-fuel, and make sure there's a lot of solid biomass. Add solar thermal too, according to taste.

I'm now working on an algorithm for multi-fuel district heating, which will provide some balancing mechanism, and optimise across all the clean sources.
