Heat Pump Expert
Griff is a technical expert when it comes to heat pumps. He has been in the industry for over 15 years and overseen the development of most of the national renewable technology standards. Griff also spearheaded several government-backed industry initiatives, such as the Renewable Heat Installer Training & Support Scheme (RHITTS) and undertakes renewable technology site visits for governmental and non-governmental schemes.
GTEC is the UK’s most established renewable training provider, with approved locations throughout the country.
As MD of heatly, Griff is part of a team set to revolutionise the heat pump sector. heatly is a new app and supporting software currently in development, designed to simplify the process of heat pump specification and installation, while making the process of choosing and running a heat pump easier for consumers.
Part funded by DESNEZ under the Heat Pump Ready programme, heatly will provide a one-stop for the survey, design, installation and commissioning of heat pump systems, utilising the latest technologies, such as 3D visualisation, to create a fully interactive and intuitive system design, while dramatically speeding up processes such as room surveying and heat loss calculations. The app is scheduled for launch next year.
Hosted by Roger Harrabin, the BBC’s energy and environment analyst, other speakers include:
- Sally Fenton, Head of Built Innovation, Department for Energy Security and Net Zero
- Nicola Lazenby, Heat Pump Ready Programme Lead, Department for Energy Security and Net Zero
