[Published 19 October] The Heat Pump Ready Programme forms part of BEIS’ £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP), which aims to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative clean energy technologies and processes through the 2020s and 2030s. As a key solution for decarbonising homes, heat pumps will be critical for meeting the UK’s legally binding commitment to achieve net zero by 2050. Heat Pump Ready will support the development of innovative solutions across the heat pump sector.

Heat Pump Ready is aligned with other BEIS NZIP Programmes, in addition to Ofgem’s Network Innovation Fund (NIC) and the Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF), which is delivered in partnership with Innovate UK.

The Heat Pump Ready Programme is split into three, separate delivery streams:

Stream 1: Solutions for High-Density Heat Pump Deployment. Up to £30m of Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) funding from Spring 2022.
Stream 2: Developing Tools and technology. Up to £25m of grant funding for projects to overcome barriers to heat pump deployment, beginning Spring 2022.
Stream 3: Trial Support and Learning. Up to £5m contract from Spring 2022.

Stream 1, Solutions for High-Density Heat Pump Deployment, will support the development and trial of solutions and methodologies for the optimised deployment of domestic heat pumps at high-density. Stream 1 – Early Engagement Notice is available at this link: ... b036f22f42

Stream 2, Developing Tools and Technology, will support the development of tools, technology and processes to overcome specific barriers to domestic heat pump deployment.

Stream 3, Trial Support and Learning, will provide support to ensure knowledge transfer and shared learning across the Heat Pump Ready Programme. This stream will provide support to the Stream 1 projects, joining-up Stream 2 technology and tools with the Stream 1 projects where relevant and establishing working groups to collaborate on shared elements of deployment. Stream 3 – Prior Information Notice is available here.
