Final Report – Part 7 Annex 55: Comfort & Climate Box – towards better integration of heat pumps and storage

According to IEA’s recently published report “Net Zero by 2050 – A roadmap for the global energy sector” (2021) one of the defined key milestones, are “no new sales of fossil fuel boilers by 2025” and that “50%
of heating demand is met by heat pumps in 2045”. To fulfil this the stock of installed heat pumps needs to increase from 180 million units in 2020 to 600 million units in 2030 (almost quadruple) and thereafter a tenfold increase to 1800 million units in 2050.
