Last week, delegates from Sustain were invited to speak at a Heat Networks information seminar organised by Oxford City Council and the UK Association of Energy Engineers.
As a result of our extensive heat network experience, it was felt that we could offer real insight to businesses and organisations affected by the 2014 Heat Networks (Metering & Billing) Regulations (HNMBR).
Speaking alongside representatives from the National Measurement & Regulation Office (NMRO), Chris Jennings, Sustain’s Strategic Development Manager, took the opportunity to discuss how best to achieve compliance, the pitfalls and issues of the process and ways to make the most out of complying. The seminar also outlined the next steps for organisations to take to improve their heat networks and plant room efficiency.
Chris said ‘the event was well attended and provided a great opportunity for a range of affected organisations to voice their concerns and questions regarding HNMBR. It became clear that there was a high level of uncertainty surrounding the regulations and we feel that we were able to provide some useful advice to dispel some of those concerns.’
It is intended that those in attendance will benefit from a greater understanding of the regulations and a smoother compliance process.
For affected organisations, compliance is mandatory and must be achieved by 31st December 2015. To find out more about the regulations and get in touch, visit our HNMBR information page.
For those who were unable to attend or wish to find out more, the presentation is available to download here.
