Government heat pump roadshow coming to Manchester

The Department of Energy and Climate Change is running a series of roadshows on heat pumps in June and July, designed for those interested in installing the technology on their site.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is running a series of roadshows on heat pumps in June and July, designed for those interested in installing the technology on their site.

The free roadshow, which comes to Manchester on 7 July, is aimed at helping potential heat pump customers in both the domestic and non-domestic sectors, including businesses, developers and housing providers.

Training course

The full day training course will advise on how heat pumps, which extract and amplify heat from air, water or the ground, can deliver lower energy costs, greater comfort and better buildings.

It will also help to improve delegates’ technical knowledge of the technology and provide advice on financing, including making use of the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.

Increasing interest

The roadshows follow increasing national interest in the potential of heat pump technology.

A report published by DECC in March suggests that around one million homes and businesses could benefit from water source heat pumps alone, with 6GW of renewable heat exploitable from England’s rivers.

Manchester is one of several major urban areas across the country that has been found to be suitable for extracting heat from rivers. 

The findings form part of the National Heat Map tool being developed by government to demonstrate the potential of renewable heat across the country.

The course will also be made available through an online portal by the end of July for those who are unable to attend in person.
