Our HeatSage technology transforms the lives of households reliant on existing electric storage heating and hot water systems

The Challenge

There are 1.5m UK households with electric storage heating, charging on archaic Economy 7-type tariffs – at inappropriate times like11.30pm - 1.30am. This guarantees residents are too warm in the morning and too cold in the afternoon/evening. Residents resort to expensive supplementary heating to keep warm. This increases total network consumption by up to 9% at the winter evening peak, the most carbon-intensive period.

Households reliant on electric storage heating are disproportionately fuel poor – many cannot afford on-peak supplementary heating and go to bed early or go cold.

Existing heaters can deliver a much better service if flexibly charged at better times.

The HeatSage Solution

HeatSage has four components: a smart load switch situated next to the resident’s meter; a temperature and humidity sensor located in the lounge; a communications gateway; and, the Connected Response cloud-based server which manages the system.

HeatSage has been installed in London tower blocks, including the iconic Trellick Tower. Glasgow Housing Association has just embarked on a four-year project to install HeatSage in all 10,000 of its flats heated by electric storage heating.
