Reduce emissions

Without reducing comfort

Help energy transition

  • Get involved in a plan for Domestic Hot Water that will help reduce carbon emissions from water heating without having an impact on comfort.
  • If you enjoy the experience and you want more, we will include other electricity demands like space heating, electric vehicle charging and provide a mechanism for integrating solar PV.
  • Your involvement will influence how we develop an approach that will become central to the energy transition over the next 3-5 years.
