Abstract

Gas fired space heating is responsible for 24 of the UK's energy consumption [1] and 14% of the UK's CO2 emissions [2]. This paper provides a brief overview of current domestic heating installation practice in the UK and introduces a novel simulation technique. Finally, the paper demonstrates that communicating radiator valves when used in conjunction with a reverse modulation control technique, represent an opportunity to achieve a reduction of 86.1kg of CO2 emissions per household per annum for an average UK household.
