Across the United States, programs that electrify space heating homes and buildings — primarily using high-efficiency space heating heat pumps— are growing rapidly. A topic brief released today shows that current-year budgets for the 23 programs we reviewed are nearly $110 million, up 70% from the prior year.
Here is the content list:
Benefits of electrifying space heating
Electrifying water space heaters
Electrifying vehicles and commercial buildings
These programs build on a policy framework in several states (discussed in a recent post) that promotes decarbonizing electricity generation and then using this cleaner electricity to replace fossil fuels where feasible and practical.
In areas with high use of delivered fuels (fuel oil and propane), such as the Northeast, many programs target customers using these fuels, because the economics of electrification in these situations are often better than when displacing natural gas. Likewise, a few programs, such as in California, Connecticut, Illinois, and Michigan, are encouraging all-electric new construction — another market segment with favorable economics.
An increasing number of programs are looking to encourage space heating heat pumps as primary space heating heat pumps systems. In regions with the growing use of air conditioning, ductless space heating heat pumps are a popular way to add both supplemental space heating and efficient air conditioning to homes that are difficult to retrofit with central air conditioning.
While our topic brief focuses on space heating heat pumps for space heating, programs to promote space heating heat pumps are also extensive.
For example, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) measures its success based on avoided carbon; it has a program to encourage homes with gas water space heaters to install electric space heating heat pumps when an existing water space heater needs replacement. It offers $3,000 incentives for converting to space heating heat pumps; these incentives typically cover more than 90% of the costs of the new water space heater, including conversion costs. In 2019, more than 1,000 space heating heat pumps were installed. The pace picked up in 2020, with 436 units installed in the first quarter.
Likewise, the California Public Utilities Commission earlier this year approved $45 million for utility sspace heating heat pumps programs through the Self-Generation Incentive Program (which is separate from energy efficiency funding).
Programs to date emphasize the residential sector. While commercial applications are often eligible, they are usually not targeted, and where targeted, the emphasis is on smaller buildings. Analysts and programs are just starting to consider electrification opportunities in the commercial sector.
There are also large electrification opportunities in transportation, with many state and utility programs promoting electric cars, trucks, and buses, as well as the charging infrastructure and rates needed to support electric vehicle (EV) deployment.

How to buy a space heating heat pump?
The energy efficiency ratio is high. One part of electricity supplies three parts of heat. The space heat pump is essentially a heat-lifting device that absorbs heat from the surrounding environment and transfers it to the object to be heated. At work, first, input 1 part of electric energy to drive the compressor to do work, and then absorb a large amount of heat energy from the outside environment temperature, and release heat in the condenser through the refrigerant circulation system. It is precisely because of the existence of the "law of conservation of energy" that the 1 share of electrical energy input to the compressor can always be converted into 1 share of heat energy, and the large amount of heat energy absorbed from the external environment becomes an additional harvest. In other words, the main force that really heats water is not the input of electrical energy, but the free "heat" in the air.
Electricity is not expensive, and ordinary households can afford it. The initial investment of space heating heat pump heating products is indeed much higher than that of electric heating, but the operating costs are also much lower, the comfort is better, and it is safe.
1. The model should be selected according to the larger one of the heating load in winter and the cooling load in summer.
2. When the unit is used as the auxiliary heat source of the solar hot water system at the same time, it should be determined according to the maximum specifications that meet the requirements of the three.
3. On the premise of meeting the above requirements, the equipment capacity should not be over-enlarged.
The purchase of space heating heat pumps can be selected from the following seven aspects:
1. Appearance inspection: The outer surface of the paint should be uniform, bright in color, without falling off, with no dents, severe scratches, or pressing marks, etc; The outer shell should be made of fluorine titanium plate.
2. Strictly prevent counterfeit and inferior products, it is best to buy directly from the manufacturer.
3. The accessories should be complete.
4. Inspection of the power plug: the wiring must be firm, and of course it is better if the line is thick and hard. If it is too small, it will heat up after power on for a while, and it may even cause a fire.
5. Power-on test and constant temperature performance check whether the indicator light is on, and whether the machine is humanized setting does not require people to normally open and normally close. Whether there is overheating protection function and whether the defrosting is good.
6. Noise: The smaller the noise of the heat pump water heater, the better.
7. If the space heating heat pump has the function of magnetization or ion activation, the effect will be better.
It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce an industrial heat pump that meets the standards, so as to ensure the safety of the use of heat pumps and the healthy development of the heat pump market. MICOE many tests on heat pumps before they leave the factory, and the quality qualification rate is guaranteed. If you are in the heat pump business, you can consider our cost-effective products.
Dec.6th, 2010, 154,000 square meters production base in Luoyang city was put in production. The capacity is 1,000,000 solar water heaters per year, which opened a new era of the integration and layout of solar energy industry.
Since the "carbon peaking and carbon neutrality" strategy was put forward, the clean energy market has ushered in a period of strategic development opportunities. Many brands have rushed into the heat pump market, starting from policy research, technology research and development, business development, etc., and strive to make a good first move and create new brand advantages.As a comprehensive service provider of low-carbon and clean energy, Micoe has been closely following the pace of national low-carbon development of green energy. On August 26, it officially signed a contract with the China Polar Research Center to become a partner of China's Arctic and Antarctic scientific research and released CAS 2.0 clean energy. The coupled intelligent operating system is once again at the forefront of the industry.
The polar cold test!
The Arctic and Antarctic scientific expeditions witnessed the new strength of "warmth".
If practice is the only criterion for testing truth, then extreme environments are the touchstone for testing product stability and reliability. As the top ten leading brands of air energy heat pumps, Micoe air energy products are available in all categories, and relying on strong R&D and production strength and excellent product quality, Micoe continues to expand new application fields and application scenarios with the trend of "sail the blue ocean".
At this summit, Micoe Group and China Polar Research Center formally signed a cooperation agreement. This not only marks that Micoe has officially become a partner of China's North and South Pole scientific research, but also means that Micoe air energy products will board the "Xuelong" this winter, promoting the development of the clean energy industry with the responsibility and responsibility of a national enterprise, and promoting the development of the clean energy industry to the world. Fully demonstrate the strength and charm of "Made in China".
It is reported that the natural conditions of the Antarctic continent are extremely harsh. Not only is the altitude high and the air thin, but also the temperature is extremely low and snowstorms are raging. The Antarctic expedition team's work and life in the polar regions are extremely difficult, especially in terms of heating, they must meet strict environmental protection requirements. It is also in view of this that Micoe Air Energy will undertake the important task of "escorting" the logistics support work of the Great Wall Station, providing the Micoe Air Energy vegetable greenhouse heating system for the greenhouse glass house of the Great Wall Station, ensuring soilless cultivation of tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. Green vegetables can thrive at 15℃~26℃. This will be a brand-new attempt of clean energy technology to serve the polar scientific expedition work. It will play a very significant role in promoting both the improvement of the living conditions of the scientific expedition team members and the consideration of polar environmental protection.

CAS 2.0 makes design and construction "smart".
Today, it has been less than 9 years since the "carbon peak". How to effectively ensure that the national "carbon reduction" target is achieved on time has become a top priority for the industry, and to ensure that various projects are in the process of "carbon reduction" energy consumption statistics, energy audits, energy consumption The authenticity of monitoring and other data information is the top priority. Facing the industry's urgent need for efficient energy conversion and efficient utilization, Micoe officially released the CAS 2.0 clean energy coupled intelligent operating system at this conference.
The CAS 2.0 system has been upgraded in an all-round way on the basis of 1.0. Based on the CAS2.0 system, the intelligent design system and intelligent control system have been launched, which are not only digital tools based on the design of the energy supply cleaning system, but also an intelligent control and management platform for end customers. . The system can not only realize the best comprehensive energy application form in different scenarios through the "intelligent design system" big data algorithm, but also realize the transformation from "human control" to "intelligent control" through the "intelligent control system", redefining energy with the CAS system station, making the system more intelligent, energy efficient, and operation and maintenance more convenient.
It has been implemented in many application scenarios such as communities, hotels, schools, hospitals, industry, agriculture, animal husbandry and fishery. Specifically, the intelligent design system based on CAS 2.0 can quickly produce a plan in 5 minutes, reduce the project cost by 30%, and control the error compared with manual design. At about 5%, it solves the problems such as excessive variance and inaccurate design caused by traditional manual design due to unprofessional design. The intelligent control system based on CAS 2.0 goes a step further. After the application of the project, it can reduce the after-sales personnel by more than 60%, save more than 20% of energy compared with the traditional manual control method, and increase the after-sales efficiency by more than 70%. The intelligent design and intelligent control system are based on CAS2.0, design is what you get, to solve the problem of separation between design and actual projects.
"The air source heat pump energy station is a system problem, with products accounting for 30% + system design accounting for 40% + installation, operation and maintenance 30%. In the heating renovation project of Hebei Nangong community (about 140,000 square meters), we use the CAS system to convert all areas of the community into The temperature change in the district heating period is analyzed. Through intelligent analysis of various energy sources in the area, the energy coupling design is quickly carried out, and the trinity model of product, design and implementation is realized, and the design, operation and control of clean energy heating are comprehensively solved. and possible problems in the supervision link.” Xu Meng, director of the Micoe Engineering Technology Center, gave an example when talking about the application of the CAS system.
In the early stage of design, the intelligent design system based on Micoe CAS was adopted, which reduced the system cost by 31% and the payback period by 7%, which greatly improved the competitiveness of the design scheme; during the operation process, the first heating season (2020) ~2021) In the case of pure manual control (the system is regulated once every 2 hours), the second heating season (2021~2022) will adopt the CAS-based intelligent control system, reducing the system operating cost to 17.01%, the operating cost per square meter 12.30 yuan/㎡, the labor cost decreased by 62.5%, which improved the profitability of the project.
The new era creates new demands, and new demands drive new upgrades. In the long run, making clean energy project design smart and simple is of great significance to promoting sustainable energy development and accelerating the realization of my country's "dual carbon" goal. A new chapter in the rapid development of the market.
For a long time, Micoe has been committed to breaking through the ultra-low temperature barrier with technological innovation. It is understood that the Micoe ultra-low temperature variable frequency unit serving the North and South Pole scientific expedition adopts ETS 1Hz full DC frequency conversion technology, gas-liquid dual injection technology EVLI, three-valve joint control technology TVL, solid-change coupled double flow defrosting technology SVCDFD and other core technologies , to meet the use scenarios of the Great Wall of Antarctica standing at extremely low temperatures, and to overcome natural harsh conditions such as blizzards at an angle of 0 degrees, high salt content, and high humidity.
