Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project
The Government has announced its Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project.
According to BEIS, the Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project looks to demonstrate the feasibility of a large-scale roll-out of heat pumps in a representative range of 750 British homes.
The objectives are to:
- develop, test and evaluate innovative products and services that increase the appeal of heat pumps and identify optimal solutions for a wide range of homes
- demonstrate that heat pumps, including gas-electric hybrids, can deliver high consumer satisfaction across a wide range of consumers in Great Britain
- demonstrate the practical and technical feasibility of heat pumps, including gas-electric hybrids, across Great Britain's diverse housing stock
- capture learning from the project to help improve awareness across the heating supply chain, raise acceptance and support wider deployment of heat pumps in Great Britain
Some £16.5m will be made available as part of the BEIS Energy Innovation Programme's Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project.
GSHPA welcomes the Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project
GSHPA welcomes the BEIS electrification of heat demonstration project, and is ready to offer technical support for all ground source elements. Mass roll-out of heat pumps will be critical to achieving Net Zero by 2050.
