Last night, BEIS announced the launch of its £450m Boiler Upgrade Scheme, to support the increased adoption of heat pumps across the UK.
Laura Bishop, Chair of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association said “The GSHPA welcomes the launch of the Boiler Upgrade Scheme and grants of £6,000 for ground source heat pumps. Together with zero VAT, the scheme should help reinforce consumer confidence in investing in ground source heat pumps, but we’d like to see more Government ambition for the scheme. The GSHPA is urging Government to increase funding significantly for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, so that it can make a more important contribution to domestic heat pump uptake and the transition to low carbon heat.”
The Ground Source Heat Pump Association represents heat pump system designers, contractors and installers across the UK.
