Heat Metering

The centralised production of heat and the distribution of heat as a utility (for example district and communal heating systems) necessitates the measurement of the heat supplied for monitoring and billing purposes. Financial incentives to encourage the generation of heat from renewable sources also depend on the measurement of the heat generated to quantify the amount of renewable heat. Heat metering is essentially another form of utility metering, with the principal difference being that heat energy is more complex to measure than electricity or gas.
