who we are
The Pump it Up campaign is challenging government to pause and commit to a re-think of the future support it makes available to large-scale heat pump projects.
Despite acknowledging that heat pumps are "one of the primary technologies for decarbonising heat", the Future support for low carbon heat consultation, launched by BEIS at the end of April and due to close on 7th July, envisages only deployment of small-scale heat pumps in off-grid households and the niche possibility of larger pumps being used in district heat settings.
Pump it Up members span a wide variety of sectors, including retail, utilities, agriculture, housing and academia. The breadth of large-scale heat pump projects these organisations are already working on underlines the sheer scale of potential heat decarbonisation set to be lost if policy proposals are followed through.
