New energy law could save the UK up to £12 billion per year on energy costs
A new energy bills that focuses specifically on energy efficiency could help the UK save up to 12 billion pounds per year in energy costs, various organizations and groups have argued.
The proposed ‘Cost Effective Energy Measures Bill’ aims to promote measures including energy efficiency, community energy and more efficient use and production of energy in and from buildings.
It is supported by a variety of organizations, including the Sustainable Energy Association (SEA), the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE), National Energy Action (NEA) and Co-operative Energy.
The organisations said if the bill becomes law “it would require the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change to draw up a ‘Cost Effective Energy Measures White Paper’, namely a national strategy to promote and accelerate the use of cost effective energy measures”.
They claim the project, which is also backed by 60 MPs, would help the UK save money, ensure energy security, support the nation’s carbon reduction targets of 80% by 2050 and end fuel poverty.
It would also create more than 100,000 jobs per year between 2020 and 2030, states the report.
HeatingSave – the Building Energy Management System of choice for cutting your energy costs
HeatingSave is a revolutionary Energy Management System that took 2 years for their scientists and engineers to develop. HeatingSave not only reduces the energy consumption of businesses and homes by typically 25%+ but has unique features such as a heat-loss algorithm that can be applied to each heating zone for latest possible start of a heating period and early switch-off; when conditional make it possible, at the end of the period. It uses occupancy sensors to turn down the heating when nobody is about and automatically turn it up when the building is occupied, which makes it particularly suitable for variably occupied buildings.
There are also many more features to the system. HeatingSave also monitors and controls electricity usage in real-time, including solar PV monitoring, costing calculations and load balancing. It can also be operated from mobile devices such as an iPhone.
HeatingSave is approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust.
HeatingSave was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project. This was financed by Huntingdon District Council.
