Mike Nankivell has announced that he intends to stand down as Heat Pump Association (HPA) president at the end of 2018.
Graham Wright, currently vice president of the HPA, will take over the role in 2019.
“It has been a pleasure to have had an active involvement with the HPA since its inception in 1995 and a real privilege to serve the Association as its president for the past five years,” said Mike.
“The heat pump sector is entering a new period of challenges, with changes in the refrigerants landscape, government policies related to global environmental issues, national technology subsidies, Building Regulations and of course Brexit.
“Having retired from my ‘day job’ in 2015, while I remain committed to the success of the sector and am happy to continue supporting the Association, I believe the HPA needs to move forward with someone at the helm who is still at the sharp end of heat pump technology.”
