Energy use in buildings accounts for around a significant proportion of the UK’s CO2 emissions, and the majority of that is used for space and water heating.The ETI has commissioned a major three-phase Smart Systems and Heat programme in 2012, to design, develop and demonstrate a cost optimised, smart energy system suitable for future roll out within the UK, The programme will focus on the delivery of heat whilst meeting the needs of local energy consumers.

- Phase 3:The third phase will focus on commercialisation.
