The Heat Pump Ready programme supports 35 projects across 2 streams: High-density deployment and Optimised solutions development.

AI smart heat pathway

  • Lead organisation: Green Energy Options
  • Heat Pump Ready grant value: £474,703.18
  • Project partners: Scottish Power and Vaillant

Project overview

Green Energy Options are proposing an AI smart heat pathway to enable rapid, high quality and scalable heat pump deployment. This will be achieved through leveraging AI on smart meter and smart thermostat data to determine a personal net zero pathway for each home, and size the subsequent appropriate heat pump, from actual measured data.

AI smart heat pathway will help reduce the upfront costs of property survey and design and provide a viable customer success pathway towards net zero heat for hard to treat homes. The project will be piloted across 150 homes, with the aim of scaling the AI smart heat pathway nationwide subsequently.
