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 many existing networks operate with heat losses in the magnitude of 40-50%.

Heat network optimisation

Optimising heat network performance with the application of technology, enables network operators to lower the cost of delivering ecient, low-carbon heating.
eWatch Heat Services (link to relevant place on website) ensure networks are commissioned eectively. They support optimal network performance through continuous monitoring of four parameters: volume, flow rate, delta temperature and energy.

eWatch Heat Services identify:

  • High heat losses whilst distributing heat from energy centre to end consumers
  • Low capacity utilisation due to poor understanding of load requirements
  • Poor property commissioning at consumer level, such as unbalanced radiators and poorly commissioned HIUs

eWatch Heat Services enable:

  • Data for monitoring building efficiency and performance
  • Accurate tariff design
  • Improvement of future design
  • Network operators to optimise their delivery standards

eWatch services prevent:

  • High tariffs for end consumers
  • Excessive carbon generation
