With a focus on energy efficiency and aiming to reduce the environmental impact of the development, City Island features a district heating system, which supplies residents with thermal energy for heating and production of domestic hot water.

Evinox Energy are supplying heat interface units, and ENE3 room controllers for the apartments connected to the district heating network, and also metering & billing services for the social housing apartments.

Pre-Payment for Heating & Hot Water

The 104 social housing apartments at London City Island are managed by Clarion Housing Group, and all are taking advantage of the Evinox PaySmart® Pre- payment system. Residents can purchase their energy online using our Residents Website 24hrs a day, at a local Payzone outlet, by monthly Direct Debit or Standing Order, using our Web App on a smart phone or tablet any time or over the telephone.

Metering and Billing Regulations

Our PaySmart® pre-payment system provides a simple solution to meet with the requirements of the Heat Network (Metering & Billing) Regulations at London City Island. The metering and billing technology is inbuilt in each ModuSat® Heat interface unit. Not only is the technology integrated, it can also be activated remotely at any time, providing a flexible billing approach for the social housing apartments.

Credit towards Code for Sustainable Homes

ViewSmart ENE3 ImageEach home at City Island also features an Evinox ViewSmart ENE3 controller, which can display all the information required to gain credits for the Code for Sustainable Homes. This includes historical consumption data in a graphical format to enable residents to view information about their usage and compare different periods. This provides several benefits to social housing providers and developers, primarily it removes the requirement to install a separate energy display device to gain credits towards the Code for Sustainable Homes.
