MWA Technology aims to put RHI on the energy agenda at Sustainability Live 2014
Making the most of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will be the main topic of discussion when MWA Technology attends Nemex's Sustainability Live event on April 1st.
The independent metering specialist is looking to raise awareness of the Government programme, which is looking to financially incentivise home owners, businesses and organisations to use renewable energy systems as a way of heating their properties.
According to Managing Director Martin Wardell, the scheme is currently suffering as a result of incorrect schematic diagrams and meters not being fitted in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions or Ofgem guidance.
The former chemical engineer believes that improved training and communication about the application of the meters is key and will result in greater efficiencies and cost savings.
MWA Technology, which is a founding member of the Ofgem RHI Advisory Group, has experts on hand to discuss this issue on Stand H21.
It has also recently launched a dedicated RHI (www.rhimetering.co.uk) website to help people understand exactly what is involved.
"There are some massive financial opportunities for people to benefit from RHI, but we have to help them understand what is involved and what they get out of it," explained Martin, who formed the company over 20 years ago.
"We have to move to sustainable energy and the Renewable Heat Incentive has its part to play. In order to measure how effective the savings are, we need to ensure that the right meters are used, as this will ultimately dictate your output and how much you will be paid."
He went on to add: "We have been at the forefront of this programme and all of our technicians are trained in installation and helping our clients get the best out of it.
"Our involvement in Ofgem will help us influence the future direction of the scheme and iron out any initial issues. This group is gathering pace and we are determined to build more sustainable systems, create energy efficient homes/buildings and develop new ways of generating energy."
MWA Technology is at the forefront of intelligent data management and currently stocks the latest in automated meter reading (AMR), including brands such as ABB, Kamstrup and Secure Meters.
A team of technical experts can advise on the best product to suit a host of desired applications and will work with customers on ensuring a successful installation.
Each year significant funding is invested in researching the marketplace and in developing relationships with some of the world's leading technology providers.
Martin continued: "One of the latest products we've sourced is Northern Design's Multicube Modular Meter, which is designed for the capture of intelligent data through multiple units.
"It is ideal for any organisation looking for a solution that is space efficient, easy to install and set-up and future proofs any further installation."
MWA Technology currently supplies its metering solutions to distributors, contractors, OEMs, facility management companies and energy monitoring professionals, with high profile projects completed at Oxford University, Kew Gardens and Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre.
In addition to a 5000-strong meter range, the company has introduced new services to clients including repair and refurbishment of meters, testing, technical and on-site support.
