Heating your house intuitively (CP787)
Post on 25th Jan 2018
This project was delivered by South Holland District Council. It mirrored a similar project with the same partner to compare three other smart heating controls in other council owned properties1. Each project was recommended by the funders to involve installation of 45 to 60 heating controls of three types for comparison. The two projects were on too large a scale to be combined into 1 project report, but the methodologies were comparable so comparison is possible.

CP788 – Heating your house the smart way
Post on 25th Sep 2017
This project was delivered by South Holland District Council (SHDC). It mirrored a similar project with the same partner which compared three other smart heating control products in other properties. Each project was recommended by the funders to involve installation of 45 to 60 heating controls and compare three technologies. The projects were on too large a scale to be combined, but the methodologies were comparable and so there are benefits in comparing results from both.

Heat Decarbonisation: Potential impacts on social equity and fuel poverty
Post on 16th Sep 2017
NEA commissioned this report to help stimulate debate on the policy options we must consider as we seek to decarbonise heat alongside delivering fuel poverty strategies across the UK. It helpfully draws out some of the tensions and challenges we face in changing the way in which we heat our homes, and the authors help us to consider the cost implications and distributional impacts of different funding mechanisms.
