How it works

If you do need to comply, you should have already notified the Secretary of State and by 31 December 2016 you must:

  • Either install metering or heat cost allocators to measure heat delivered to each final customer and provide regular billing information.
  • Or undertake a cost-effectiveness / technical feasibility assessment to show it is impractical to install metering or heat cost allocators.

We can help you by:

  • Carrying out feasibility studies to investigate if is it technically and financially viable to install meters.
  • Making ongoing submissions to the National Measurement and Regulation Office on your behalf – as you must submit detailed information about your heating networks every 4 years.

How you benefit

  • Ensures you interpret the regulations correctly and avoid the mistake of thinking you are exempt when you are not and vice versa.
  • Saves you the time, hassle and worry involved in making the submissions yourself – we handle all the paperwork, ensure everything is correctly presented and processed quickly.
  • Gives you the opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of your property –  by metering each end user you can, for example, find out where the majority of heat is being lost within a building or heating network and put plans in place to mitigate this.
  • We can also provide a rebilling service to make the whole process as simple and trouble-free as possible for you.
