Energy Saving Trust have carried out field trials of energy saving and renewable energy products since 2001, in order to evaluate product performance and customer experiences of products in real life situations.
We work with energy suppliers, government, trade bodies and manufacturers to understand the performance of low-carbon technologies and energy efficient measures in domestic and commercial environments. Field trials can involve either established technology or new innovations that require performance to be assessed as part of the research and development process.
You may be a manufacturer introducing a new product to market, or a local authority wanting to understand the impact of potential retrofit technology - our ability to implement projects, ranging from large scale field trials to individual case studies, means we can design and run trials for a wide range of audiences and purposes.
We have completed field trials for the following technologies:
We can also provide energy and environmental monitoring services for clients requiring building performance evaluation.
Small-scale field trials are an engaging way for manufacturers to demonstrate product performance through a trusted and independent organisation.
These projects usually involve conducting energy monitoring research in a sample of approximately 10-15 homes, in order to generate valuable data and facilitate a robust evaluation of product performance across a variety of building types or consumer groups. Field trials can also generate the performance data needed to enable a product’s energy performance claims to become EST Verified.
