A project that saw network losses reduced by 68% has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.

FairHeat was appointed to diagnose and analyse the efficiency at the 115-flat Elizabeth House development in Wembley and oversee improvements to the network.

The project has now been shortlisted for Consultancy Project of the Year at the Association for Decentralised Energy Awards 2016 after FairHeat helped to deliver a 68% reduction in network losses.

As a social housing provider, Octavia Housing wanted to ensure the lowest possible tariff for tenants, while guarding against network inefficiency.

Thanks to the improvements made to the network by FairHeat residents’ heat tariffs were significantly reduced.

The company will find out if it has been successful at the awards ceremony on Wednesday, November 23.

Part of a DECC-funded project with Guru Systems, FairHeat carried out improvements on site based on real-world data.

The improvements made by FairHeat fed into Guru Pinpoint, a web-based analytics tool that allows operators to remotely diagnose inefficiency on a network and see costed measures for improvement.
