Switch2 Energy has published a free guide to help district and community heating scheme operators to comply with the updated Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations.
It is believed that many of the UK’s 17,000 heat network operators failed to respond to the four-yearly Duty of Notification process by the 31 December 2019 deadline. The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS), which enforces the regulations, has begun issuing formal warnings to these non-compliant heat networks.
The guide details the urgent action heat network suppliers need to take now to comply with the legislation. It also explains the future requirements that are expected to be introduced later in 2020, following the current Heat Network Market Framework consultation period.
