Smart Meter Enabled Thermal Efficiency Ratings (SMETER) Technical Assessment Contractor (TAC)
Validating remote ways to measure thermal performance
SMETER Technologies comprise algorithms that calculate the Heat Transfer Coefficient (HTC) in combination with a product that is installed in the home to measure the parameters required by those algorithms. The feasibility phase will provide Competition Participants with data and advice to develop their algorithms and products and the results will be assessed to help decide which SMETER Technologies go through to the Field Trial. The Field Trial will evaluate the accuracy of the developed SMETER Technologies and their user acceptability. Our team brings together the UK’s leaders in this area of research, and is ideally placed to deliver an academically rigorous evaluation, as well as to provide the robust methods, models and data sets required to enable others to innovate in this area for many years to come.
