DECC publishes updated Energy Technology List

The Department of Energy & Climate Change has just published its updated Energy Technology List, with HeatingSave again featured as a top supplier of Building Energy Management Systems.

The ETL (or Energy Technology Product List, ETPL) is a government-managed list of energy-efficient plant and machinery, such as boilers, electric motors, and air conditioning and refrigeration systems that qualify for full tax relief. For a product to be on the ETL, it must meet specific energy-saving or energy-efficient criteria. It is part of the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) tax scheme for businesses.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) annually reviews the technologies and products that qualify for inclusion. The ETL is managed on behalf of DECC by the Carbon Trust.

Under the ECA scheme, a business can invest in energy-saving plant or machinery that might otherwise be too expensive.

The first year allowances let businesses set 100% of the cost of the assets against taxable profits in a single tax year. This means the company can write off the cost of the new plant or machinery against the business’s taxable profits in the financial year the purchase was made.

HeatingSave – a revolutionary Building Energy Management System on the Energy Technology List 

HeatingSave is a revolutionary Energy Management System that took 2 years for their scientists and engineers to develop. HeatingSave not only reduces the energy consumption of businesses and homes by typically 25%+ but has unique features such as a heat-loss algorithm that can be applied to each heating zone for latest possible start of a heating period and early switch-off; when conditional make it possible, at the end of the period. It uses occupancy sensors to turn down the heating when nobody is about and automatically turn it up when the building is occupied, which makes it particularly suitable for variably occupied buildings.

There are also many more features to the system. HeatingSave also monitors and controls electricity usage in real-time, including solar PV monitoring, costing calculations and load balancing. It can also be operated from mobile devices such as an iPhone.

HeatingSave is approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust.

HeatingSave was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project. This was financed by Huntingdon District Council.
