Craig Dolan, European Heat Pump Business Development Manager at Vaillant Group, has been appointed Vice-Chair of the Heat Pump Association (HPA).
Craig Dolan steps into the role to support HPA Chair, Phil Hurley during an incredibly exciting time for the heat pump industry.
Heat pumps have been recognised by the Government as a key technology in the push to reach Net Zero by 2050, with the technology featuring heavily in the Heat and Buildings Strategy published last year. Ambitions have been laid out to see 600,000 heat pumps installed in homes per year by 2028, with policy support in place to incentivise uptake in existing homes and roll out the technology in new homes built from 2025. Most recently, the Government announced a green VAT cut on energy efficiency measures and heat pumps over a period of five years, and a £30 million Heat Pump Accelerator Competition to make British heat pumps.
“It’s a huge honour to be appointed Vice-Chair of such an important association,” said Craig Dolan. “There are so many exciting opportunities and challenges to overcome over the next few years and the work of the HPA is extremely valuable. I look forward to working closely with Phil and my fellow HPA members to champion the role of heat pumps in the transition to Net-Zero. Collaboration with government and industry is of the highest importance and I look forward to getting to know more faces within my new role as we come together to support the growth of the market.”
The Heat Pump Association (HPA) is the UK’s leading authority on the use and benefits of heat pump technology and includes many of the country’s leading manufacturers of heat pumps, components and associated equipment.
