NIBE Energy Systems (UK) is pleased to announce that its UK Managing Director, Phil Hurley, has been appointed Chairman of the Heat Pump Association.
With 2021 set to be a turning point for tackling climate change, the appointment comes at a critical time for a heating industry which is responsible for a third of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Heat Pumps are a key solution to tackling this and the Heat Pump Association is committed to promoting their benefits and wide scale deployment as a low carbon solution. This further supports NIBE’s vision to help shape and grow the heat pump market by supporting installers through providing training opportunities and creating a supportive policy framework.
Commenting on his appointment Phil Hurley, Managing Director at NIBE Energy Systems, said:
“With the Government’s announcement of its Green Industrial Revolution, the heat pump industry now finds itself on the crest of a wave. I would like to thank Graham for his tireless work and leadership which has brought significant results. I look forward to building on Graham’s achievements and ensuring the heat pump industry is ready to step up and deliver on its promises.”
The Heat Pump Association is in great shape following Graham Wright’s tenure as Chairman which began in 2019, leading to some major breakthroughs for the heat pump industry. Working closely with Graham, Phil Hurley had been Vice-Chairman of the HPA since April 2019. As Chairman, he will now work alongside newly appointed Vice Chairman, Max Halliwell of Mitsubishi Electric.
