NIBE Energy Systems (UK) has announced that its UK managing director Phil Hurley has been appointed as vice-chair of the Heat Pump Association.
“I am very pleased and honoured to have taken on this role, assisting the new chairman, Graham Wright, in achieving the association’s aims and goals,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working with a range of manufacturers to promote all types of heat pumps and, with the opportunities ahead to de-carbonise heat in our homes and buildings, there is much that we can achieve together.”
The Heat Pump Association (HPA) is the UK’s leading authority on the use and benefits of heat pump technology and many of the leading manufacturers are members, including NIBE.
Working across domestic and commercial sectors the over-arching aim of the association is to ensure architects, specifiers, developers and home owners fully understand the technology that is available and appreciate the myriad of benefits that can be realised.
“We want to support and encourage the increased use of heat pumps and this has never been more critical now that the Government has outlined a ban on gas boilers in new homes from 2025,” he added. “The future for heat pumps in the UK is very exciting and I hope that in the long term we can emulate the benefits enjoyed by other European countries who have embraced the technology and wide product range available to great effect.”
