Clean heat market mechanism Consultation


In Government, Heat pumps

The government announced recently its Clean heat market mechanism consultation.

The CIPHE would like to share the details of the consultation that seeks views on the design of a market-based mechanism to support the development of the market in low-carbon electric heat pumps. 

In this consultation, they are seeking views on a range of design features of the planned scheme, including proposals for:

  • Scheme targets, technologies in scope and weightings for the early years of the scheme
  • Credit trading within the scheme
  • The collection, handling and use of the data required for the scheme
  • Scheme administration, compliance and enforcement

This proposed mechanism will create a market incentive to grow the numbers of heat pumps installed in existing premises each year, providing the industry with a clear, long-term policy framework for investment and innovation.
