USA: Carrier has backed the US Climate Alliance’s commitment to quadruple heat pump installations across the US by 2030.
The Climate Alliance, a bipartisan coalition of 25 governors across the US, represents approximately 60% of the US economy and 55% of the US population.
“At Carrier, we are focused on developing industry leading heat pump technology that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while saving on fuel costs for home and business owners,” said Justin Keppy, Carrier’s president of North American residential and light commercial HVAC.
“I applaud the US Climate Alliance for taking a bold stand that will advance the energy transition, create jobs, and result in healthier more affordable heating and cooling solutions for the residents of their states. It’s a move that is good for people and the planet,” he added.
Carrier’s commitment to global heat pump innovation and access includes its prior commitment to investing $2 billion by the end of 2030 on sustainable solution innovation. Its focus on electric heat pumps has included field testing of prototype cold climate heat pumps in harsh climates as part of the Department of Energy’s Cold Climate Heat Pump Challenge; and the recent designation of its Collierville, Tennessee facility as its Center of Excellence for high-efficiency heat pump production.
