Phil Hurley is the new Chairman of the Heat Pump Association (HPA), replacing Graham Wright who has finished his two-year term and now steps down from the role. Replacing Phil Hurley as Vice-Chairman is Max Halliwell of Mitsubishi Electric.
During his tenure Graham Wright oversaw some major breakthroughs for the heat pump industry and has steered the HPA into a strong position in helping to push the UK towards a carbon neutral future.
Graham said: “It has been a real honour and a privilege to Chair such a forward thinking and hard working group. I am proud to see heat pumps at the forefront of Government strategy in the decarbonisation of heat.”
Phil Hurley has been HPA Vice-Chairman since April 2019 and is Managing Director of NIBE Energy Systems. He 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 (HPA) is a UK authority on the use and benefits of heat pump technology and includes the country’s leading manufacturers of heat pumps, components and associated equipment.
Proposals put forward by the HPA are developed closely with a membership base that represents around 95% of the heat pump market manufacturing share, including all of the large multinational companies providing product to the UK market, ensuring that the proposals are workable and credible.
