Risk of fines for non-compliance of Heat Network Regulations for new builds

Press release from: TEAM (Energy Auditing Agency Ltd.)

Risk of fines for non-compliance of Heat Network Regulations

There is a growing concern with landlords and developers that they may face fines over the heat network regulations. The main issues are lack of awareness of the regulations, what the requirements are and the changing deadlines.

The first phase of the Heat Network Regulations 2014 required participants to submit notification of communal and district heating systems by 31st December 2015. The original heat metering viability tool included within the notification software was found to be flawed and must be replaced. The promised new and improved heat metering viability tool, which is intended to identify all those areas where heat sub-metering must be installed, is yet to be released by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Therefore, it is advised that no further assessments should be undertaken. Note that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has confirmed that they would not be issuing any fines for non-installation of heat meters to existing landlords who have already notified the NMRO.

However, every new build development must adhere to the regulations; the risk of fines is high for non-compliance. It’s imperative to install heat metering, for fair and transparent billing, in all individual properties within new developments.

Justine Grant, Senior Energy Consultant at TEAM, said:

"It is advised that heat meters are suitable for purpose and that they comply with Measuring Instruments Directives (MID: Class 2)"
