Heat Metering Regulations
Compliance Pain or Long-Term Gain?
This breakfast briefing was jointly hosted between AgilityEco, Pellings and ENER-G Switch 2. The session began with Simon Trevenna of the National Measurement and Regulations Office (NMRO) providing an overview of the Heat Network Regulations 2014 and its associated deadlines, as well as touching on the reasons behind the recent withdrawal of the viability tool and its impact on completing notifications.
Nigel Goddard, Pellings then provided a case study example of working with a Local Authority to achieve compliance, from establishing the landscape of existing assets and billing arrangements through to achieving desired outcomes.
Gearoid Lane, AgilityEco took to the podium to discuss the benefits of Heat Metering and Billing to both the landlord and its residents. Gearoid also explored the opportunities available to landlords as a result of changes to legislation and evolving technology for developing a rigorous project-managed Heat Metering strategy.
