According to this article Scotland is planning an initiative to put heat pumps in at least one million homes and 50,000 businesses by 2030. The Netherlands is planning on two million hybrid heat pumps by 2030 by installing at least 100,000 per year starting in 2024. These goals will help create the necessary volume to promote price reductions. In the Netherlands, hybrid heat pumps save homeowners up to 70% on natural gas consumption for heating. A heat pump works like a refrigerator and can be powered by solar and wind energy. To heat a building, a heat pump extracts energy from outside air and converts it to heat for the building. In summer, the heat pump runs in reverse and takes energy from the room and moves that heat outside, efficiently cooling your home or business.
