Europe Needs Heat Pumps, Not Methane Gas

As the vicious and illegal war on Ukraine rages on, Western Europe wrestles with losing its supply of Russian oil and gas. How should the U.S. respond? Please join us in telling President Biden to export electric heat pumps instead of doubling down on fossil fuels.

President Biden does not have to choose between providing Europe with energy or protecting the climate. He can do both by taking an innovative yet effective action: invoking the Defense Production Act (DPA) to drastically ramp up manufacturing of electric heat pumps for export to Europe.

Electric heat pumps provide an efficient alternative to burning fossil fuels to heat and cool buildings. By increasing production and export of heat pumps, the Biden administration can keep methane in the ground while helping Europeans meet their energy demands in this time of need.

Supercharging heat pump manufacturing would also create domestic jobs and advance the U.S. on its clean energy revolution.

Putin’s power and the climate crisis have one thing in common: a dependence on fossil fuels. By choosing electric heat pumps over more fossil fuels, we can take a giant step toward addressing both.

Call on President Biden to use the Defense Production Act to ramp up heat pump production, and let’s keep Europe warm and the climate cool.
