  • One third of all primary energy consumed in our society is used for space heating and water heating in buildingsIf we are to tackle climate change, energy security and deployment of renewables we must address this sector
  • One third of all primary energy consumed in our society is used for space heating and water heating in buildingsIf we are to tackle climate change, energy security and deployment of renewables we must address this sector
  • The UK government has set a path to decarbonise the electricity system almost completely by 2050By 2020 the target is for 30% of all electricity to come from renewable sources (In Ireland its 40%)Off-shore and on-shore wind are the 2 major contributors – by 2020 30GW of wind capacity is planned (half today’s peak demand in the UK)The challenge is the intermittent nature of wind generation
  • To facilitate this transformation in our energy system we must use more electricity for heatingThe Quantum system offers the opportunity to do this by decoupling supply of energy to the building from use of that energy by the consumerThe technology exists today – we must now work to ensure the different elements of the heating system, the communications infrastructure and the ICT are brought together seamlessly to deliver solutions for the consumer and the electricity industry.
  • Glen Dimplex is the world leader in electric heating.We are investing in the technologies to achieve a decarbonised, electric future for space and water heating
  • Quantum is a ground-breaking technology.It is the first true smart grid enabled electric heating system.It has the potential to revolutionise home heating – delivering affordable comfort and very low levels of carbon emissionIt goes further by facilitating connection of higher levels of renewable generation onto the gridIn Ireland we are working with Eirgrid on their DS3 initiative with Quantum to help increase renewable penetration on the grid from the current maximum of 50% up to a target level of 75%
  • Because the delivery of energy to the Quantum heaters can be controlled remotely we can ensure that much of the energy is delivered at times when renewable generation is high. This allows connection of more renewables onto the grid and results in Quantum having low levels of carbon emission in the energy consumed for heating.By 2020 we have estimated that more than 70% of the energy delivered by Quantum will be from renewable sources
  • To achieve this goal we need to work closely with partners in the ICT sector and the utility sector.The technology exists to process the data, maintain its security, communicate seamlessly and affordably and to deliver consumer friendly heating solutions and billing systems.The task is to bring them all together into one coherent solution
  • Collaboration is key and we are bringing major industry players together to turn this vision into a reality
