US DOE & Ontario Canada Studies Support Expanded Deployment of Geothermal Heat Pumps
Late in 2024 two (2) very impactful studies from the US DOE and the Ontario Clean Air Alliance both come to the same basic conclusion, …”the mass deployment of GHPs can electrify the building sector without overburdening the US electric power system.” Not a surprise to people involved in the geothermal heat pump industry for many years, but nice to have the timely recognition.

“…the mass deployment of GHPs can electrify the building sector
without overburdening the US electric power system.”
2. ONTARIO AIR QUALITY ALLIANCE
All-electric heat pumps are growing in popularity across Ontario because they are
incredibly efficient, they save homeowners money, they reduce carbon emissions,
they can increase home comfort, and they provide both heating and cooling.
Concerns have been raised about the impact of electrifying home heating on power
demand during winter peaks. While there is no question that Ontario must increase
its power generation as all sectors of our economy electrify in line with our climate
goals, this report analyzes the potential for existing technologies to reduce the
peak power draws from single family homes that adopt all-electric heat pumps.
