Anyone with old night storage heaters will know how quickly they can discharge their heat, leaving you feeling cold in the afternoon. A solution may be in the offing.
A company called Vcharge, now owned by OVO, have developed a way of controlling heat output to keep buildings at a comfortable and constant temperature and reduce overall energy consumption. See the link below. This technology has been rolled out in America and a small trial in the UK. OVO are promising to roll out in the rest of the UK in due course.
