The International Energy Agency (IEA) released a special report, “The Future of Heat Pumps,” in which they start with a strong statement: “Heat pumps, powered by low-emissions electricity, are the central technology in the global transition to secure and sustainable heating.”

“Heat pumps are an indispensable part of any plan to cut emissions and natural gas use, and an urgent priority in the European Union today,” said IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol in a statement. “The technology is tried and tested, even in the coldest of climates. Policy makers should be putting their weight behind this technology that is witnessing unprecedented momentum at the moment. Heat pumps will be central to efforts to ensure everyone can heat their homes this winter and next, to protect vulnerable households and businesses from high prices, and to meet climate objectives.”
