A one day seminar which aims to build industry collaboration as conditions for significant heat pump deployment improve. Gathering both the heat pump industry, manufacturers and installers, and the electricity supply sector will enhance the understanding between demand and supply. The presentations will seek to reassure generators and distributors that the heat pump sector knows how to minimise its impact on the grid, and will give the supply industry the opportunity to set out its requirements to manage the loads, whilst simultaneously accommodating the demand for extensive EV charging.
