Housing professionals updated on heat network regulation

Housing providers from the public and private sector will hear feedback from the government's recent heat networks regulation consultation and learn about new metering and billing obligations at a free breakfast seminar in Central London on March 17.

The event is being hosted by Switch2 Energy and legal specialist Winckworth Sherwood, who will be joined by the Office for Product Safety & Standards, which is responsible for enforcing the Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations.

Heat suppliers from housing associations, local authorities and the private sector are invited to the seminar for an update on the regulations following closure of the consultation January 9, 2020.

Tom Penson from the Office for Product Safety & Standards will answer delegates questions about the outcomes of the consultation, which include proposals for retrofitting final customer meters to existing non-metered buildings, where viable, and other proposed extensions to the regulations to further improve metering accuracy, maintenance and billing.

Colin Hall, partner for Winckworth Sherwood, will brief heat scheme operators on the latest requirements to ensure they are in compliance with the metering and billing regulations, including the new Duty of Notification process, which sets out a new process for the mandatory four-yearly reporting cycle.

Ian Allan, head of market strategy for Switch2, will explain how game changing digital technology can transform metering and billing strategies. This not only assists regulatory compliance, but also creates huge efficiency improvements and enhancements to customer service – leading to impressive cost and carbon savings.
