To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps his Department is taking to help ensure that the cost of heat pumps is reduced in the short and medium term.
15 July 2021
We expect the upfront costs of heat pump installations to reduce significantly as the scale of the UK market grows in line with the Government’s ambition for 600,000 heat pump installations per year from 2028.
We are taking a range of steps both to support the heat pump market to develop and to support consumers with the costs of installing a heat pump in the near term while the market builds. These include, for instance, the planned Clean Heat Grant and the Future Homes Standard, which will ensure that new homes are future-proofed with low-carbon heating from 2025.
We will set out further plans for developing the heat pump market in the Heat and Buildings Strategy.
