The proposed pipe lagging activity is focused on improving the energy efficiency of systems of heated pipework in commercial and industrial facilities by installing insulation (also called lagging) to reduce heat loss. Without lagging hot pipes act as uncontrolled radiant heating to the surrounding environment. This often accounts for 10-12 per cent of the system’s fuel consumption without providing benefit to the facility.

The Hot Pipe Lagging issues paper describes hot pipe lagging and its role in energy efficiency and discusses ways to define the activity and important variables involved in the estimation of emissions savings.

Please answer the following consultation questions about the proposed hot pipe lagging activity.

The closing date for consultation submissions is 5 February 2020.
