Saltaire’s Switch2 to lead major energy-saving project in Brighton

Saltaire’s Switch2 Energy has partnered with Southern Housing to manage operation of the housing association’s Brighton heat network. 

The heat network supplies residents of Southern Housing’s Home X development, which is part of Brighton’s £300m new city neighbourhood. 

Switch2 will be responsible for operating and maintaining the entire heat scheme – making use of its smart technology to maximise efficiency, cost, and carbon performance.

As part of the long-term partnership, Switch2 will also provide customer service support for residents, together with smart metering and billing.

Loviene Dinnall, Development Manager for Southern Housing, said: “Each member of the Switch2 team has demonstrated in-depth knowledge of their area of the business and discipline.  The team have been proactive, diligent, collaborative and solution oriented. Most of all, Switch2 have demonstrated a clear commitment to delivering a high standard of customer service.”  

Richard Harrison, CEO of Switch2 Energy, said: “We are delighted to partner with Southern Housing and will draw on more than 35 years’ experience of developing and operating hundreds of heat networks. Our data-driven approach will ensure that we lower energy costs for residents, while helping to reduce carbon output.”
