Energy efficiency technologies could reduce the annual electricity consumption of UK households by 2.5 million MWh per year
The deployment of energy efficiency technologies could help UK households cut electricity consumption by an impressive 2.5 million MWh per year, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The data is based on a report by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) following its Solent Achieving Value from Efficiency (SAVE) project, a five-year-long energy efficiency programme run across 8,000 homes in the Solent region.
SSEN notes the initiative, which was funded through Ofgem, achieved a significant reduction in carbon emissions and household energy costs by “fusing smart technologies with customer interaction” and installing measures such as LED lighting in homes.
Targeting only domestic customers, SSEN said the scheme revealed energy efficiency is highly effective in managing peak demand and can provide a viable alternative to network reinforcement.
It notes if the scheme was rolled out to all 3.8 million SSEN customers, the positive effect on the environment could be the equivalent of removing 28,000 cars from the UK’s roads.
HeatingSave Building Management System (BMS) – the easy-to-retrofit energy saving solution for any home
The HeatingSave Building Management System is registered on the Government Energy Technology List, which means that its energy-saving credentials are fully accredited.
Plus, as it allows home owners to cut energy bills by up to an impressive 30%+, HeatingSave is the perfect energy-saving measure to implement, given the huge long-term savings it enables.
The system is built around the idea of optimizing the energy consumption levels within any area with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if it’s warm and off earlier if it’s cold.
It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.
Additionally, the automatic occupancy detection allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
If you’d like to find out more information on the HeatingSave system, just contact our dedicated team, they’ll be more than happy to answer all of the questions and queries you might have.
