23 organisations including industry, governments and NGOs have drawn up a roadmap of the barriers facing the heat pump sector – and solutions to overcoming them. 

The ‘Heat Pump Accelerator’ was handed over to EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson on 6 June by the coordinators of the initiative, the European Heat Pump Association and the European Climate Foundation.  

The European Commission is due to publish its first-ever heat pump action plan by the end of 2023, to help the sector reach the REPowerEU target. This target means 60 million additional heat pumps installed in Europe by 2030. Today there are around 20 million, and demand is increasing all the time, but the sector is facing bottlenecks.
