Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations Update

01/12/2016

The Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations 2014 implement the requirements in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) with respect to the supply of distributed heat, cooling, hot water and cold water and came into force on 18 December 2014. The EED promotes energy efficiency in the EU to achieve the Commission’s 2020 20% headline target on energy efficiency. It lays down rules to overcome market failures that impede efficiency in the supply and use of energy. 

The Regulations are enforced by the Regulatory Delivery Directorate (RDD) within the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

A summary of the Regulations and the changes that have occurred up to October 2016 are provided within this update. For further details, see www.gov.uk/heat-networks.
