BEAMA forms domestic heat pump association

BEAMA has created the BEAMA Domestic Heat Pump Association and its chairman is Chris Davis, head of Renewables at Dimplex.
BEAMA has been working in collaboration with the heating industry including Worcester Bosch, Dimplex, Baxi, Danfoss Heat Pumps, Vaillant, Stiebel Eltron, Zehnder UK and Myson.

BEAMA (British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers Association) members are active in many market sectors including commercial and residential buildings and energy networks.

Kelly Butler, BEAMA’s marketing director said: “For a couple of years BEAMA has been active in this sector having negotiated the ASHP grant under LCBP, pushed for the upcoming SAP Q scheme, and steered the Code for Sustainable Homes to give credits to ASHPs as a low zero carbon technology. Invited by DECC to lead a Heat Pump Policy Forum shows the standing we have as the leading authority on domestic heating with heat pumps. The new association is a natural fit'.

“BEAMA is well on the way to being the priority voice within Whitehall for domestic heat pumps. We’re in ongoing discussions with further potential members and will continue to work with Summit Skills, EDF and other energy suppliers to grow the market to its full potential. Plus, government has welcomed the industry’s views and has asked for a detailed heat pump market development plan and a future meeting to progress proposed initiatives.”

BEAMA's plans include sharing market statistics, a heat pump specific guide for planners, ensuring SAP can calculate the renewable content of heat pumps and incentive assessments.

Butler added: “The domestic heat pump sector has vast potential - up to 2020 it’s estimated to be 1.4-1.75 million units, largely coming from the ‘low hanging fruit’ of 4 million off gas homes. For this to happen, we have urged the Government to make CERT and CESP more attractive to ensure penetration of heat pumps.”

BEAMA has been established for over 100 years and represents 150 UK companies.
