Performance management for heat networks
– Lower running costs
– Reduce carbon emissions
– Mitigate fuel poverty
What are the drivers for optimising your heat network?
Networked heating can reduce energy costs for users and service providers and helps to mitigate fuel poverty. More efficient heating networks can also significantly reduce the carbon footprint of urban centres. However, potential for inefficiency is inherent at multiple points in every heat network, and safeguards to prevent sub-optimal operation are recommended.
eWatch heat service is part of an integrated solution to optimise the efficiency of heat networks and reap maximum benefit for all.
With the pragmatic application of technology, eWatch Heat Service simplifies the task and helps lower the cost of delivering efficient, low-carbon heating to all those connected to your network.
Government regulations and funding* support the establishment and maintenance of heat networks that optimise energy use and serve customers.
eWatch heat service makes compliance with government legislation easy and helps you achieve Competition and Market Authority recommendations.
Using remote technology and data analysis, the solution gives service providers peace of mind that all their customers are being served and government regulations* whilst lowering their operating and maintenance costs:
• Design, install and commission appropriately: By following a series of simple steps, all properties can be verified to the same standard; commissioning and verification reports confirm each property is connected appropriately.
• Measure and review performance: by monitoring individual HIUs, risers and plant rooms regularly, the solution highlights any persistent efficiencies
• Act on the data and address inefficiencies proactively: with a suitably scoped service and maintenance regime, performance can be maximised, whilst operating costs can be lowered.
eWatch Heat service captures and analyses data to generate graphical reports about individual HIUs and overall network performance. Poorly performing properties that need attention are identified easily.
The service considers three key aspects:
• Verification of appropriate commission
• Monitoring on-going performance
• Improving through proactive service and maintenance
Ongoing monitoring of the network and follow-up action as required, helps keep costs low for both operator and resident, and ensures reliable, adequate heat supply reaches all those connected, including tenants vulnerable to fuel poverty.
