The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have launched new guidance AM17: Heat pumps for large non-domestic buildings.
The guidance sponsored by BEIS is free to use for designers, contractors, and consumers, and will enable installations to follow best practice and be delivered safely, legally and to a high quality.
In a foreword to the guidance, Lord Callanan, Minister for Business, Energy and Corporate Responsibility, said:
“The UK has set a legally binding target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Achieving this will require virtually all heat in buildings to be decarbonised, and heat in industry to be reduced to close to zero carbon emissions.
“In the Heat and Buildings Strategy, the UK Government set out its approach to decarbonising buildings. The strategy details both near-term actions and a longer-term policy framework, bringing together a number of measures to improve energy efficiency and transition to clean heat.”
