Increasing financial returns for district heating networks
We provide solutions that enable heat networks to become more intelligent and autonomous, improving efficiencies so as to achieve improvements in internal rates of return of 5 – 15 percentage points with payback periods as short as 4 years.
Reduced peak demand
PassivPro uses demand flattening technology to identify and reduce future demand spikes
Lower return temperature
PassivPro uses smart valve control technology to modulate space heating and increase temperature differentials (delta T)
Smart controls reduce heat demand loads
Using our award-winning controls, consumers are able to remotely set their heating schedule reducing the time the heating is on unnecessarily
District Heating Service Suite
Choose from our range of services to improve the efficiency and return from your district heating networks.
Automated Meter Reading
PassivPro connects securely to the market leading meters and modems for remote retrieval of a wide range of meter data direct from each site.
Network Load Management
PassivPro manages the heat demand across all network connected homes to achieve optimal network performance without compromising consumer comfort, creating lower energy usage, reduced running and system repair costs and improved energy efficiency.
Our secure platform provides network operators with remote control of heating to customers’ homes, and equips customers with a user-friendly, next generation pre-payment service. Customer accounts are cloud-based rather than meter-based, which helps with debt collection, and the pre-payment service integrates seamlessly with PassivLiving HEAT.
Smart Valve Control
Remote control of the flow valve in the HIU allows us to modulate delta T (the differential between flow and return temperatures), to maximise heat extraction in every home on the network, thereby optimising overall network efficiencies and delivering comfort at lowest cost.
PassivLiving HEAT provides advanced control technology by using learnt thermal properties, weather forecasts, consumer behaviour and comfort preferences to deliver optimised comfort and lowest cost.
Open Climate Fix
Passiv is sharing data with Open Climate Fix to help address a major challenge in the UK energy sector around balancing the supply and demand of electricity in response to the increasing availability of renewable energy generation.
Smart hybrid heat pumps provide the UK’s pathway of choice to decarbonise heat
Lord Deben, chairman of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) commenting on the potential for smart hybrid heat pumps in the CCC’s November 2018 report
Taking a hybrid approach to decarbonise domestic heating
Decarbonising heat is going to be challenging. Colin Calder, CEO of PassivSystems argues for an approach that utilises both electricity and gas on a domestic level to provide low carbon warmth.
Freedom: the key to carbon, comfort and cost in home heating
The Freedom Project is investigating the potential of multi-fuel, hybrid home heating systems to address the balance between energy security, social impact and environmental security to deliver comfort, carbon and cost.
Passiv saves Goldfield Partners thousands in Solar PV management and administration costs
The reduction in the Feed-in-Tariff has created numerous challenges for the Solar PV industry.
