Heat Pump Conference 2019
Tuesday 17 September
National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull B92 0EJ


This year's conference was an opportunity for members to share experiences, to hear presentations on current and future policy and to gather information from sponsors and exhibitors on the latest technical developments in ground source energy.

We also looked to members to contribute to ideas and concepts for the improvement of public awareness in what heat pump technology can deliver in The GSHP Big Challenge Debate: How do we, as an industry, raise the profile of ground and water source heat pumps to become the mainstream choice for heating and cooling?

All delegates had the opportunity for networking, meeting the presenters and talking to exhibitors over a hot buffet lunch sposored by Dragon Drilling.

The influencers in the heat pump sector including Ally Rae from BEIS and Ian Rippin from MCS presentated to the members. Further presentations were given by Richard Knipe from Franklin Electrics and John Westerman from Hydratech.
