What is Thermal Submetering?
In Canada, energy-conscious communities are expanding their use of Thermal Energy Systems for heating and cooling buildings. One challenge these systems face is the ability to effectively measure and bill thermal energy consumption to end users, such as condominiums, apartments and commercial units.
Unlike other utilities such as electricity and gas, there are currently no federal regulatory standards in Canada regarding thermal energy measurement. Measurement Canada has indicated it will follow already established European and international thermal metering standards EN1434 and OIML R75 and that it is committed to implementing a standard, as per its Trade Sector Review.
Other international jurisdictions have either developed or are currently developing their standards for thermal energy measurement. The United States and China are basing their regulations off of the well-established and recognized Eurpean and International Standards.
