Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project

About the project

Warmworks has been awarded funding from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to deliver the Electrification of Heat Demonstration Project to householders in South East Scotland.

The project will install a range of different heat pumps, which are a renewable form of domestic heating technology, in around 250 homes across the region. The majority of those homes will be privately owned and on the gas grid. The cost of the heat pump and installation is fully covered through funding from BEIS.

The project aims to make homes warmer and more energy efficient over the longer term, as well as reducing householders’ reliance on fossil fuels and traditional sources of heat. It is also intended to provide the UK Government with a greater understanding of the motivators behind householders installing heat pumps, the barriers they face in doing so and how a large-scale rollout of heat pumps might work in the future.

Who is involved in delivering the project?

There are three separate project areas in different parts of the UK, each managed by different companies.
Warmworks is the chosen delivery partner in South East Scotland.
