Fuel poverty in a smart energy world

Smart heating controls, while not yet commonplace, are growing in popularity in UK homes. While many households currently put up with a below par heating experiences because they find traditional heating controls confusing and hard to use, smart heating can give households room-by-room control of comfort and cost.

This research fills that gap – conducted for the Energy Revolution Integration Service to inform Smart Local Energy System innovation projects. It explores how vulnerable households use smart heating controls and how they could benefit from future smart energy services (e.g. room-by-room control and advanced information about the cost of different ways of heating their home).
