Recent changes to the Heat Network (Metering & Billing) Regulations that affect district and community heating suppliers will be explained at a free breakfast seminar at London Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Tuesday 15 September.
Community heat metering and billing specialist ENER-G Switch2, together with Pellings and AgilityEco, are hosting the seminar to advise heat suppliers, such as developers and landlords, on how to comply with the regulations.
Guest speaker Chris Smith from the National Measurement & Regulations Office (NMRO) will help explain the latest regulatory changes introduced by the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC).
These changes include a delay in the requirement of landlords to complete the notification assessment and a withdrawal and revision of the Heat Metering Viability Tool, which is used to check if retrofitting final customer metering is feasible on the scheme.
“DECC’s recent changes have caused widespread confusion, particularly among those schemes without meters for final customers,” said Ian Allan, Head of R&D at ENER-G Switch2. “As well as providing an update on the changes to the legislation and explaining the next steps and implications, our panellists will share practical experiences of helping heat suppliers to become compliant and the opportunities this can offer.”
The Heat Network (metering & Billing) Regulations have resulted from the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Directive and affect every heat network in the UK. The legislation introduces new rules about installing meters for monitoring and billing usage.
This seminar will provide examples of real life heat schemes, demonstrating how the introduction of metering can bring huge cost saving and efficiency benefits to both landlords and residents. Delegates will have an opportunity to direct questions to the expert panel.
