NW Ductless Heat Pump Project Implementation

NEEA is soliciting proposals from qualified vendors for program coordination and support for NEEA’s NW Ductless Heat Pump Program (NWDHPP) that will result in direct and measurable electric energy savings.

The goal of the NWDHPP is to create lasting market transformation for DHPs by placing the region on a trajectory to achieve 65 percent penetration of existing single family zonally heated electric resistance homes by 2040.

To support NEEA’s market transformation efforts, the following objectives are overarching focus areas for the NWDHPP:

  • Increase consumer awareness and adoption of the technology in the defined target markets
  • Drive down product and installation costs to achieve greater affordability
  • Increase adoption of the 1:1 displacement method
  • Development and adoption of variable capacity heat pumps rating/testing procedure

NEEA is soliciting proposals for the NWDHPP support for:

  1. Program Coordination
  2. Training and Technical Support
  3. Supply Chain Development (Cost Containment Market Intervention Strategy and Execution)
  4. Supply Chain Development (Retail) 

Work awarded through this request for proposals will extend from February 2018 through March 2019, with the option to renew for up to two (2) additional years at NEEA’s discretion.
