UK forced to implement tougher energy market rules by July

The UK government will be forced to introduce shortly tougher regulations on the energy market, in order to comply with the EU regulation on wholesale energy markets and transparency (Remit), a news report reveals.

Under European directives, the Regulation on Wholesale Energy Markets and Transparency (Remit) must be brought into force by the end of June, meaning that time is actually starting to run out for the UK government, leaving it only a few weeks to comply.

The tougher measures, which also include a series of hefty fines, should be introduced by UK energy regulator Ofgem and have been specifically designed in order to detect any attempt at market manipulation and insider trading, partly by demanding that all trade deals be reported publicly.

After receiving some public displays of criticism regarding their delay of implementing these measures, the Department of Energy and Climate Change said Remit was a complicated piece of legislation that had involved a lot of work by government lawyers.

A spokesman for DECC said the government would beat the 28 June deadline, adding that “secondary legislation will be introduced shortly”, with sources believing that this could be as soon as next week. The bill is designed to meet the twin needs of keeping the lights on and reducing carbon emissions at the same time as ensuring that household bills remain as low as possible.

Unfortunately, it’s still quite unclear just how this bill will affect the energy suppliers’ business and whether it will translate into energy bill hikes or not.

Whichever the case might be, bills are certainly not going down, so it’s perhaps a good idea to start considering the implementation of a solution that would enable you to cut up to 30 percent of your monthly expenditure, and this is exactly where HeatingSave comes into play.

What really makes HeatingSave stand out from the crowd is the fact that it grants energy managers an extensive level of control over the building’s heating patterns, meaning that heating will not be on during weekends or holidays unless the building is actually in use.

Additionally, the system also enables automatic occupancy detection allowing the temperature to be reduced to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.

It’s also very important to mention that HeatingSave can take an automatic decision on whether to use electricity or gas for heating during summer, and also enables users to set a night setback temperature, reducing the night heating by a few degrees to still keep 24/7 operations warm whilst saving energy and money.
