Increasingly primary utility supplies are recognising that heat networks are becoming more widespread. Heat networks offer a unique means to address limitations of our current energy supply networks as well as the need for a more efficient use of energy into the future.

Challenges Faced

Utility suppliers when looking towards heat networks and private utility networks may be faced with a lack of system compatibility, with their current systems build around existing industry flows that do not exist within heat networks and private utility networks.

Additionally, the knowledge and experience of installing metering networks for such systems may not exist within the organisation at the present time.

Sycous Solutions

Sycous offer several flexible solutions for utility suppliers looking to adopt heat network and private utility network metering systems.

Firstly, we offer open-protocol and robust Metering solutions from well-known suppliers such as Diehl, ABB, Landis & Gyr and ZENNER alongside world-class data collection equipment from Elvaco. Additionally, we can supply PAYG systems to minimise debt risk.

Our Project Delivery Team provide on-site and office support, as well as a single point of contact for all Installation activities by our expert team.

Finally, our Mabdeck Software can be utilised to undertake billing and PAYG management in-house, or to undertake utility-specific validations and pass validated reads into existing systems via our API. We can also provide further assistance with our Customer Billing Service to operate some or multiple supporting functions, such as meter validation with our Meter Data Management (MDM) service.
