A summary of the government’s Heat pump net zero investment roadmap
By 2035, the government aims to phase out fossil fuel heating in homes and businesses and achieve a fully decarbonised electricity system, subject to security of supply.
The Heat pump net zero investment roadmap outlines the government’s plan to accelerate the adoption of heat pumps in households, businesses, and public buildings to help the country achieve its net-zero emissions target by 2050.
The government's ambition is to install 600,000 heat pumps annually by 2028 and 2.5 million heat pumps per year by 2030, with an investment of £35 billion in the industry over the next ten years.
The plan includes several measures, including financial incentives for households and businesses to install heat pumps; support for the development of the heat pump supply chain; and research and development into new and improved technologies.
To support the roll out, the government aims to increase the number of skilled workers in the industry through training and apprenticeships, as well as ensuring that there is a robust regulatory framework in place to maintain high standards and protect consumers.
Speaking of the roadmap, Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP, Secretary of State for Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, says: “We're providing £100’s of millions in support for businesses and consumers to bring more heat pump manufacturing to the UK. The UK will soon be one of the largest markets in Europe for heat pumps, boosting our energy security and helping us reach net zero.”
At Briar, we welcome the Heat pump net zero investment roadmap that promotes the use of heat pumps as a sustainable heating solution to support the transition to a low-carbon economy, while ensuring security of energy supply.
