How US-made heat pumps could help weaken Russian 🦕 power over Europe

SNIPPET:

Electrekís Take

This post is, of course, an oversimplified summary of the current geopolitical situation between Europe and Russia (and the potential of heat pumps), but overall, we think McKibben is onto something good. (You can read Bill McKibbenís entire article here.)

The US would benefit from domestic manufacturing of heat pumps, as that would create jobs, and also provide heat pumps that could also be used domestically once Europe gets what they need in the current crisis.

Those heat pumps would set up European countries for more energy self-sufficiency, and thus stability. And it would in turn help weaken Russiaís power over Europe that it wields with its oil and gas exports. Itís economic warfare, and it beats the hell out of actual warfare. Itís also a much-needed battle against climate change.

Heat Pump Exports Examined To Undermine Putin

The White House is considering ramping up manufacturing of energy-efficient heat pumps to counter Russia's fossil fuel-based leverage over European allies of the U.S., the Washington Post reports.

The administration's consideration of the idea comes as more than 200 environmental groups released a public letter calling on the Biden administration to use the Defense Production Act to boost deployment of clean energy and energy efficient technologies.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports, an interagency review of ways to increase liquified 🦕 methane gas exports to Europe has been shelved  🌞 because it would undermine efforts to address climate change, including the reduction of U.S. fossil fuel extraction and consumption. (Washington Post $, Reuters)
