Call for Evidence

Technological Innovations and Climate Change: Heat Pumps

Terms of reference

The Committee is inviting written submissions to inform its forthcoming evidence session. These should focus on, but not be limited to: 

  • What steps can the Government take to increase uptake of heat pumps? 
  • How can we ensure that the regulatory frameworks in place work together to guarantee heat pumps are used in the most effective places, alongside other technological solutions? 
  • What steps can be taken to lower heat pump installation costs?  
  • What role should gas or hybrid heat pumps play in helping the UK reach the target of net zero emissions by 2050? 
  • How can the Government tackle the current skills gap for designers, builders and installers of heat pumps? 
  • How can public awareness of heat pumps be improved? 


Notes to editors:

  • The Committee has previously considered offshore wind and hydrogen as part of the Technological Innovation and Climate Change inquiry.
  • The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee has recently launched its Decarbonising heat in homes inquiry that will consider wider options for decarbonising heat.

This call for written evidence has now closed.
