How to tackle fuel poverty with an effective metering strategy
Due to poor maintenance and insulation, UK homes are some of the most expensive to heat in Europe — which is why the energy industry has pledged to tackle fuel poverty.
As part of ista’s ongoing commitment to this important issue, we are proud to announce that our technical presentation, ‘Tackling fuel poverty with an effective metering strategy and your responsibilities to the heat network regulations’ has received Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation.
Designed by leading industry experts, the course is an insight into the current status of heat usage in buildings across the country and a focus on the fuel poverty impact in the UK, with a study of how effective metering and data collection can accurately measure and positively impact heat users and costs with legislation and compliance for guidance of how to ensure buildings can comply and contribute positively to carbon reduction.
Our CPD presentation is divided into 10 sections to provide some guiding principles for building an effective energy metering strategy. This will include guiding you through some generic products which are available across the industry, these will enable you to comply with legislation.
What is CPD?
CPD is the holistic commitment of professionals towards the enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout their careers. It is essential in helping individuals, organisations or entire industries to keep skills and knowledge up to date. Being ‘CPD accredited’ means that our training has reached the required standards.
