This consultation seeks views on proposals to introduce a market-based mechanism to support the development of the UK market for low-carbon electric heat pumps.
This mechanism will create a market incentive to grow the numbers of heat pumps installed in existing premises each year, providing industry with a clear, long-term policy framework for investment and innovation.
In this consultation, we are seeking views on a range of design features of the proposed mechanism, including:
- the proposed scope of technologies and installations
- the choice of core target for the mechanism
- options for trading within the mechanism
- options for scheme administration, penalties and enforcement
We have also published a consultation-stage impact assessment.
This consultation was launched alongside the Heat and buildings strategy.
