SMETER Project Shows Successful SmartHTC Measurements

The BEIS SMETER programme has successfully demonstrated how SmartHTC delivers accurate and repeatable thermal performance measurements. Close agreement between SmartHTC and conventional coheating tests was shown in 30 houses and validated by an independent consortium of leading universities.

SmartHTC validation report published

BTS are delighted to publish the largest validation study of an in-situ thermal performance measurement method ever carried out. SmartHTC is a game changing, low cost and unobtrusive method of measuring the true energy performance of buildings whilst occupied.

A turning tide for the measurement of buildings?

The recent Building Performance Network report, ‘State of the Nation Review: Performance Evaluation of New Housing’ was published this week. The report provides more evidence that we simply don’t know the real performance of our buildings, underwhelming policies based on predicted performance all of which leaving buildings at risk of unintended consequences.
