Variable Speed Heat Pumps (VSHPs) have the potential to deliver significant efficiency, carbon and comfort benefits to the region. VSHPs are distinct from single-speed or even multi-stage heat pumps because they can ramp up or down to exactly meet heating and cooling demand. As a result, they use significantly less energy than traditional heat pumps. In fact, NEEA estimates that the adoption of VSHPs in electrically heated homes could save the region over 50 aMW over the next 20 years – enough electricity to power approximately 40,000 Northwest homes each year. In February, VSHPs became the newest program in the alliance’s portfolio of Market Transformation initiatives with the support of the Regional Portfolio Advisory Committee.
