Motion text

That this House welcomes the publication of the Heat and Buildings and Net Zero strategies, which include a commitment to deploy 600,000 heat pumps per year by 2028; notes that delivering net zero will require a very significant increase in the uptake of ground source and air source heat pumps within this decade; expresses concern that heat pump deployment is currently only 35,000 per year; believes that the Government must do more to encourage the uptake of cost-effective ground source heat pump solutions for multiple homes, including new build properties; further believes that the Government should ensure the heat pump industry has long-term stability to drive forward UK investment and training and must act quickly to reduce electricity prices to encourages greater uptake of heat pumps; and calls on the Government to increase the overall funding for the boiler upgrade scheme from 2022, including increased support for ground source heat pumps.
