Pathways to high penetration of heat pumps: Report prepared for the Committee on Climate Change
An in-depth study of the technical, commercial and behavioural barriers to uptake of heat pumps, specific to the UK.
The report assesses the impact of the current policy regime and potential alternative future policy scenarios on the market growth of the heat pump sector. The analysis is based on modelling of heat pump uptake, incorporating a detailed barrier analysis and an understanding of consumer investment behaviour. It also presents strategies towards achieving a market development whereby 7 million heat pumps have been deployed in the domestic sector by 2030.
