InstallerSHOW 2023 and elemental are delighted to welcome the UK Government’s Heat Pump Ready programme as an event partner.
Heat Pump Ready is a major innovation programme funded through the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) which is delivered by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. The programme is supporting the development of novel solutions to transform the market for heat pumps in the UK, with many of the projects in the spotlight at InstallerSHOW from 27 to 29 June at the NEC.
A dedicated Heat Pump Ready area will give delegates the opportunity to interact with the developers of the innovations, which include a range of new tools, technologies and business models designed to reduce heat pump costs, optimise performance, improve the customer journey and minimise household disruption.
Project participants will also contribute to panel discussions and Q&A sessions to share learnings and reflections on how to address the wider challenge of reaching the UK Government’s target of 600,000 heat pump installations per year by 2028.
Representatives from the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero will also take part in panel discussions and Q&A sessions, alongside experts from the Carbon Trust, which leads the programme’s collaboration and learning work stream.
Ahead of the main event, the first session will be a virtual Q&A on 25 May at 1pm. This session, hosted by Roger Harrabin, will feature a selection of Heat Pump Ready projects, Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and the Carbon Trust to highlight how the programme and the funded projects are aiming to transform the market for heat pumps in the UK.
Elemental’s Head of Content Lucy Dixon said: “The partnership with UK Government’s Heat Pump Ready programme is such a fantastic addition to the line-up for the 2023 show. We’re delighted to be working with the Carbon Trust and the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero to enable our audience to discover the latest heat pump innovations that will help us decarbonise our buildings.”
Will Rivers, Heat Pump Ready Deputy Programme Manager at the Carbon Trust, said:
“Many of the Heat Pump Ready projects are about improving the customer journey for heat pumps and making installations simpler and quicker, whilst increasing quality – so InstallerSHOW was the natural place to showcase all the great concepts being developed. Installers are the key to transforming the market for heat pumps and we are very excited to be part of InstallerSHOW to share insights and learnings first-hard from the innovation developers.”
