The team at Minibems discuss the challenges we face when delivering high performance heat networks, inviting experts from a variety of disciplines to contribute.

On the 15th October we shall host our partners, Giacomini, with whom we have developed the original smart HIU in the UK market, Giacomini.

For years the standard heat interface unit (HIU) had two main roles: metering and billing, and turning the heat on and off for residents on a heat network. Performance was often forgotten or not tracked.

With online connectivity the HIU is now able to make a material and major impact on the efficiency and reliability of heat networks, making them less costly, emitting less carbon and improving landlords and residents satisfaction.

We’ll discuss, ‘How the smart HIU is revolutionising heat network performance’

This is a technical webinar that will be presented on Thursday morning at 8.50am and finishing at 9.55am.

In part one, we went into the detail of existing and future design standards for HIU sizing and the implications for heat network efficiency and reliability.

In part two, we go into the detail of how the smart, online and real-time connecticivity of the next generation HIUs is changing how we should approach design and specification. We’ll discuss the features and functions that a smart HIU, allied with an expert managed service should provide.

Please register here for the second.

As always, what makes these webinars truly useful and productive is the participation from attendees. So please come along and as we always enjoy a lively Q&A afterwards.
