Verdafero Helps UK based BS Holdings’ customers save (and make) money with the Renewable Heating Initiative.
In 2011 the UK government introduced the Renewable Heating Initiative (RHI), the first of its kind in the world. The RHI is set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies among householders, communities and businesses. The UK Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources.
“Over the last few years as we installed more and more bio-fuel heating systems across multiple clients in the UK and Ireland it became increasingly difficult to effectively monitor and track the usage and costs of the heating systems to accurately record and receive payment for carbon reductions through the newly introduced Renewable Heating Initiative (RHI).” said Eddie Allen, General Manager of BSH.
The Verdafero Solution
“As an example of how Verdafero helps us drive our business, the RHI rebate can almost cover the cost of the heating fuel for a business. Having the ability to now capture, analysis, visualize and report the usage and costs from each bio-fuel installation across multiple client sites spread across the whole of the UK without having to visit each site individually is of vital importance to our business,” said Eddie Allen, General Manager of BSH.
“We can now do this from the comfort of our computer. Up until now utility expenses have been seen as something that are fixed and a cost of doing business. Now, with the greater insight provided by Verdafero, the user and importantly BS Holdings have the data at their fingertips and can quickly and efficiently alert the customer to any potential problems, show how each installation’s operations compare to others and importantly help the customer reduce their overhead expenses. For BS Holdings we use the system to accurately calculate the RHI metrics. Being cloud-based we can use Verdafero’s platform while on the road at the customer’s site” Eddie Allen continued.
