New smart heating project could help Oxford households slash emissions, energy bills
A new smart heating project pairing heat pumps with smart heating controls could help a number of Oxford households cut their carbon emissions and energy bills, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
Housing provider Stonewater has revealed plans to develop a pilot heating scheme, which will install an innovative low carbon heating solution in 60 homes.
The heat pumps will integrate with smart controls and time-of-use tariffs to optimise heat production for cost and carbon savings.
The renewable heating project, which will deploy the smart technology in 300 homes during the next two years, forms part of Energy Superhub Oxford (ESO) project which aims to decarbonise power, heat and transport across Oxford.
Leon Storer, Assistant Director and Capital Investment at Stonewater, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this innovative and forward-thinking project, supporting the local authority in achieving a net zero carbon future.
