Managing domestic energy assets for the benefit of households and networks
Homes of the future will increasingly have multiple energy assets such as electric vehicles (EVs), , solar PV and battery storage systems. The MADE (Multi Asset Demand Execution) project is all about understanding how to manage these multiple energy assets in a way that is both beneficial to the homeowner and the energy networks.
Buying a new heating appliance today typically involves finding and dealing with a local installer, as well as taking time off work to wait at home for a site survey and installation, all for a price which the customer generally does not know is competitive or not. Why not just buy online? With the internet giving customers more power and more information, is this trend finally coming to the very traditional heating sector?
New entrants like Thermondo are speeding up this slow and arduous process by doing the site survey remotely, either by asking the customer a few simple questions online or over the phone, having them upload photos of their heating system, or doing a video call. The first benefit for customers here is that they don’t have to wait very long at all to get a quotation, and they also don’t need to be at home waiting for an installer to come around and do it.

Building on the success of previous events and bringing together key stakeholders in the European heating space, we are holding another Heat Summit this year. The event, taking place in London this September, will focus on several key themes emerging from the transition from ‘old heat’ to ‘new heat’. Read on to find out what we’ll be covering and register for this unmissable event.
Navigating the transition to ‘new heat’
Delta-ee recently completed a consultancy piece for the Energy Systems Catapult looking at the integrated home energy landscape as it relates to heat pumps. In our work, we covered many aspects related to the integrated home heating market as well as the heat pump market supply chain. Here I discuss where we see this space is going.
Currently, many connected home devices and heating systems are siloed in their operation and are not fully interoperable. It often requires effort to integrate different parts of the system by homeowners or professionals. This is likely to change in the future.
The latest Connected Home Service customer survey investigated understanding, appeal and willingness to pay for connected heating controls and services. Our sample consisted of 800 homeowners in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy.
Awareness and price sensitivity for smart thermostats are low
