The Heat Pump Association (HPA) has welcomed news today that the UK Energy Security Strategy will include a £30 million Heat Pump Investment Accelerator Competition to make British heat pumps.
Heat pumps are already a predominant technology in other countries but whilst the Government has outlined ambitions to boost installations in the UK, work needs to be done to ensure that milestones are met. As the leading authority on the use and benefits of heat pump technology, the HPA has been calling on Government to help strengthen the UK supply chain and remove barriers to installation. There are hopes across the industry that more announcements focused on the technology will be brought to life when the full Strategy is published later today.
Phil Hurley, Chair of the HPA said: “In the context of the cost-of-living crisis and the tragedy in Ukraine, it has never been more important for heat pumps to be deployed at scale in UK homes, and we remain committed to collaborating with government and industry to make this happen. The electrification of heat enables energy security by giving choice to how electrical power is generated or migrated to renewable energy over time, and it’s welcome to see this reflected in the Energy Security Strategy published today. Not only can heat pumps reduce carbon now but their benefits will increase over time as the grid continues to decarbonise.”
Samsung has announced the results of a study which revealed that the UK might be nearing a tipping point on attitudes towards low carbon heating solutions such as heat pumps.
Some 78% of heating industry professionals said demand for heat pumps had increased in the last five years, with seven out of 10 professionals now seeing heat pumps as a more viable solution versus a few years ago.
