A heat metering and billing framework for use by local authorities and housing associations that is designed to help grow the heat network market and ensure customer protection has been created by Fife Council.
The framework gives local authorities and housing associations access to three suppliers capable of providing a range of services – Switch2 Energy, Pinnacle Power and Vital Energi.
Dr Tim Rotheray, director at the Association for Decentralised Energy, said: “This framework is another wonderful example of industry proactively implementing measures that will encourage the growth of the heat network market and ensure customer protection. The framework aligns with the standards and guidance already developed by industry to deliver the same objectives and it will be valuable to both Fife and potentially other councils across the UK.
