Switch2 Energy is hosting a free webinar to show local authorities and housing associations how to get the most out of compliant heat network metering and billing.

Michael King, co-convenor of District Energy Vanguards Network, will introduce the interactive webinar. Other speakers include Marko Cosic, Director of Coheat, and Ian Allan, Head of Market Strategy for Switch2.

"Getting metering and billing right isn't just about regulatory compliance. It is crucial to raising heat network performance, reducing long-term operating costs and delivering excellent customer service that provides residents with greater transparency and control", said Ian Allan.

The seminar will examine all areas of compliant heat metering and energy billing across both self-managed and S106/ESCo heat schemes. This will explore the integration of customer responsive services and digital technologies within existing metering strategies.

The hot topic of ‚Äėopen protocol systems' in metering and billing will also be covered, including the essential steps in specifying Application Programming Interface (API) technologies.

Virtual breakout sessions will address key metering and billing headaches and the principles of best practice across smart metering, credit and pay-as-you-go billing. There will also be a questions and answers session where housing professionals can quiz the technical experts.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
