Street HP Reno

Collective energy shift: street-level heat pump solutions

The LIFE Street HP Reno project champions a visionary approach to upgrading residential heating systems through the collective purchasing of heat pumps. This initiative aims to streamline the adoption of eco-friendly heat pumps on a neighbourhood scale, leveraging the collective bargaining power of entire streets. By aligning with local authorities, housing organisations and residents, the project seeks to highlight the benefits of this strategy, fostering a community-driven push towards sustainable heating solutions.

In the wake of global challenges and the pressing demand for an energy transition post-2022, the LIFE Street HP Reno initiative targets three pivotal areas: enhancing European energy independence by decreasing dependency on fossil fuels, stabilizing energy costs to alleviate fuel poverty and bolster businesses struggling with operational difficulties, and advancing decarbonization efforts to meet Europe’s rigorous greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the Fit for 55 Plan.

Leading initiatives for greener heating

  • Tailored heat pump packages: This project emphasizes collaboration with community stakeholders to boost support for collective purchasing and promote heat pump adoption. It aims to develop comprehensive home heating solutions, supported by a community-level planning and optimization modeling tool.
  • Innovative economic model: The project actively engages with industry partners to foster the development of cost-effective and high-quality heat pump solutions, aimed at aligning with ecological objectives while providing enhanced services. Additionally, it focuses on establishing a streamlined procurement model, simplifying the financing and implementation of heat pump retrofits at the street level.
  • Collective buy-in scheme: By leveraging strategic partnerships and optimizing processes, the project aims to lower the financial hurdles linked to installing heat pumps, thus facilitating their widespread adoption and aiding in the decarbonization of residential zones. It advocates for a broad-scale adoption strategy that includes extensive training and creative methods to convince stakeholders of the collective purchasing benefits.

Join us in shaping the future
The LIFE Street HP Reno project is at the forefront of fostering a sustainable and resilient energy future. By developing efficient solutions, creating effective procurement models, and employing persuasive strategies, the project aims to inspire mass adoption of heat pumps for residential heating, making a significant contribution to environmental goals and energy efficiency at the street level.
