The Heat Pump Association (HPA) attends the first ever Civil Service Climate and Environment Conference at the DESNZ Conference Centre

The HPA was delighted to attend the first ever Civil Service Climate and Environment Conference on 21st February hosted by the Civil Service Environment Network.

Representatives of the HPA attended the new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero’s (DESNZ) headquarters in London last week, meeting civil servants across the entirety of government departments to showcase the latest heat pump technology and discuss first-hand how they will play a huge role on the route to Net Zero by 2050.

The event was designed for UK civil servants from a wide range of disciplines and departments to explore the diversity of work being undertaken within the climate space and connect with like-minded individuals across government. It provided an opportunity to widen the HPA’s awareness to a broader audience of civil servants, offering insights and recommendations developed through the collaboration of its member base which represents over 95% of UK heat pump manufacturing share.

The conference also enabled the HPA to receive feedback from civil servants across government departments and engage with those at the frontline of accelerating heat pump rollout through policy framework. It provided the opportunity to communicate a positive message for heat pump technology and project its potential for decarbonising UK heating to a wide and influential audience.

It was wonderful to see the HPA extend its valuable insight from the heat pump industry to those at the frontline of net zero policy development last week, and hope we continue playing a part in accelerating heat pump rollout across the country.
