Planning for residential air-source heat pump market transformation in Wisconsin by 2030

Wisconsin led the nation in the transition to high-efficiency condensing furnaces in the 1980s and early 1990s. Now that state is poised to lead in the next evolution of residential HVAC equipment.

Speakers from Slipstream, Center for Energy and Environment, and Elevate present a playbook for the market transformation of residential air-source heat pumps (ASHPs). The team developed this playbook on behalf of the State of Wisconsin as part of the Energy Innovation Grant Program.

The playbook provides a roadmap towards a vision of ASHPs being the first choice for residential heating and cooling by 2030. The team will share research findings and the best immediate single-family and multifamily ASHP opportunities to reduce carbon, bring economic benefits to customers, and build market momentum. Finally, this presentation will include concrete recommended actions that the state of Wisconsin, Focus on Energy, utilities, and communities can take to achieve the transition.
