DECC/Ofgem will require some RHI installation to be monitored – but there are good reasons for monitoring all RHI installations, particularly air and ground source heat pumps. Housing Associations and Councils are installing heat pumpds to provide efficient heating and hot water for their tenants. 

They all need to be monitored to ensure that they are working efficiently and that tenants and occupiers are comfortable and getting the benefit from the investment in the equipment.

Monitoring is also essential for establishing a robust evidence base about the performance of equipment so that Housing Association and others can develop future strategies with confidence. Monitoring is also the best industry improvement incentive there is.
