Energy Systems Catapult runs innovation trials in its Living Lab – where 100 homes spread between Newcastle, Manchester, the West Midlands, Gloucestershire and Bridgend in Wales are fitted with smart heating systems that provide room-by-room temperature control and a wealth of data on consumer behaviour and the thermal performance of the home. Energy Systems Catapult created a heat-as-a-service offering called a Heat Plan – where instead of buying units of energy (kWh), consumers buy hours of warmth in their home called Warm Hours.
