Hatfield, 14 December 2020 – Mitsubishi Electric welcomes the latest recommendations from the Climate Change Committee on the need to rapidly scale up heat pump supply chains in its latest report. The CCC’s Sixth Carbon Budget has launched a number of suggested policies and highlighted low-carbon solutions that it believes need greater uptake to help the UK meet its goal of net zero carbon emissions.

The report suggests that by the early 2030s all boiler replacements in homes should be done using low-carbon means, primarily heat pumps, with a goal of significantly increasing energy efficiency in half of the UK’s homes by 2035. There is also a suggestion that social and behavioural changes are required to encourage maximum uptake of heat pumps from consumers and installers.

“The endorsement from the Climate Change Committee – that low-carbon heating sources, such as heat pumps, will be critical in helping the UK progress on its road to net zero – is very welcomed. The move to more sustainable home heating and the rapid decarbonisation of our building stock is an essential step to reducing emissions,” said Russell Dean, head of residential heating, Mitsubishi Electric.

The CCC lays out recommendations that all new homes are built to zero-carbon standards by 2025, with heat pumps playing a central role in the electrification of heat, taking up 75% of low-carbon heating requirements.

“We recently saw the government putting in measures to help meet its target of installing 600,000 heat pumps a year by 2028. The CCC has now recommended we need to install over a million per year by 2030 to increase the energy efficiency of our homes. Installers therefore need to quickly assess whether they have the necessary skills to support customers with their low-carbon needs, and if not, rapidly address their training needs. Otherwise they stand to miss out on the huge benefits that growth in the heat-pump market will provide.”

“By creating a greater awareness amongst both homeowners and installers on the benefits of heat pumps, as well as government incentive schemes to encourage uptake, the decarbonisation of homes can increase at pace, ensuring we reach our climate commitments,” concluded Russell.
