The convergence of smart metering, heat pumps and software that is purposefully designed to manage energy demand could provide a seismic change in the industry and expand the appeal of such technologies over the coming decade.
The Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) has urged government to rethink how it is promoting smart meter use, citing a new user survey critical of their cost saving benefits.
BEAMA said it anticipates a fundamental and unprecedented change within the functionality of heating controls moving forward that will be driven by a shift towards data-led energy management and more automated ‘smart’ functions.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) must soon decide whether to revise its plans for all UK homes to have smart meters installed by 2020, the National Audit Office (NAO) has said.
