Guru and Altecnic are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted in the ADE (Association for Decentralised Energy) Awards in the ‘Heat and Efficiency – Digital Innovation’ category, for our intelligent heating product, the Guru Integrate SATK32.

The award comes shortly after we announced our partnership with Altecnic.

Our Guru Integrate SATK32, which is the first-of-its-kind to market, has been recognised for its innovative functioning, which provides end users with numerous benefits. It enables remote commissioning for set up, network interrogation and fault diagnosis, as well as continuous commissioning when in operation, reducing the need for engineers to visit site and maximising heating efficiency.

Combining Altecnic’s next generation heat interface unit, the SATK32 Indirect eHIU, with Guru System’s Hub III Core hardware, captures detailed data for both metering and billing purposes as well as enabling advanced heat network performance management.

Faster and more reliable commissioning is also possible through remote configuration, reducing the amount of time and resource required on site, making it perfect, for example, for developers of new-build and retrofit properties.

Continuous remote commissioning reduces the need for engineers to visit site for remedial work and reduces energy usage, environmental impact and operating costs through network efficiency. Network efficiency drift can be easily seen and addressed remotely.

Guru delivers market-leading hardware and data analytics across heat networks, improving heat network performance for developers, heat suppliers, customers and our planet.

Since the company was founded in 2012, Guru has delivered more than 28,000 devices across UK heat networks.

Gary Perry, Managing Director at Altecnic, said:

By working jointly with Guru, we have together created a game-changing product that brings benefits to developers, landlords and end users alike. Not only does it save costs for all audiences, but the reduction of environmental impact is tremendous.

Being shortlisted for an ADE innovation award is a great accolade for the teams here at Altecnic and Guru Systems who have worked so hard to bring this product to fruition.

Casey Cole, CEO at Guru Systems, said:

Remote HIU commissioning is a valuable tool both before site handover and during operation as it supports lower cost and lower carbon heat networks.

Being shortlisted for this ADE award recognises both the huge amount of work Altecnic and Guru have put into this project over the past eighteen months, and also the huge potential that this technology can deliver for heat networks.

The award winners will be announced in April 2021.
