Heat Network Regulations 2014

The Heat Network (Metering and Billing) Regulations 2014 were introduced to meet the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), which promotes energy efficiency in the EU in order to achieve the binding target of a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 levels in all member states by 2020. 


Under the regulations, all heat suppliers in the UK should notify the Secretary of State of their network(s). Where it is cost effective and technically feasible to do so, they must also provide individual metering. The aim is to empower energy consumers to better manage their consumption by providing free and easy access to accurate billing information through individual metering. 

For heat suppliers in district heating schemes

A heat supplier is defined as a person or organisation that supplies heat and charges for the supply of heating, cooling or hot water to a final customer. 


This includes district heating schemes, which can extend to thousands of local authority dwellings or large commercial buildings.


Landlord heating responsibilities

The Heat Network Regulations also includes individual landlords providing heating and hot water as part of a domestic or commercial tenancy agreement, including within a service charge. 


Electricity and Gas Meter regulations

If you have a large estate of properties, particularly legacy properties which are not closely monitored or multi-occupancy buildings without individual metering, you may need to take action, due to electricity and gas meter regulations


Heat Network Regulations feasibility audit
