The next generation of heat networks

 

Join us in taking back control by saying "NO" to unregulated and unresponsive heating systems that do not adapt according to demand and outside temperature.

Benefits

Reconnect with cloud-based visibility of all aspects of your heat network.

 

Our Solution - Visible Heat Networks. 

We have teamed up with Minibems, an Exeter based software controls company, to provide demand management for communal heating systems.

Our Heat Interface Units and their technology allows us to measure, bill, diagnose and improve the e­fficiency, over time, of a communal heating and hot water scheme.

 

Using data from cloud-based controls, Minibems' building energy management system is able to respond dynamically to both building and weather conditions to reduce energy consumption. 

Real-time and historical data can be accessed remotely from Minibems’ dedicated management dashboards, enabling advanced network monitoring, control and optimisation.

 

Features:

- Full network visibility

- Outstanding control authority through electronic feedback

- Dynamic temperature control

- Automatic weather compensation

- Reduced operating and return temperatures

- Remote monitoring and fault diagnosis

- Built-in metering

Applications

Heat networks can be various sizes and serve various combinations of building types (e.g. dwellings, commercial & public buildings). Currently around 55% of the UK's 12,000GWh heat network load is supplied to the domestic sector, with around 45% supplying non-domestic loads (military, education, emergency services, health, offices, plus art, leisure and community sectors)*.

"There are over 17,000 heat networks in the UK, of which approximately 5,500 are district heat networks and 11,500 are communal heat networks. This equates to around 492,000 connections in total, including 446,517 domestic customers, 33,273 commercial customers, 4,670 retail customers, 320 light industrial customers, 1,456 universities and school and a further 4,865 mixed use networks."
