Testing Being Performed On Hybrid Heating Systems

If you are a resident of Bournemouth, you do not have to worry about boiler installation and repairs because there are Gas Safe certified boiler engineers who will take care of the task. When there are signs of a faulty boiler, your best option is to call for boiler repairs immediately and not wait for the problem to worsen.

According to interim results that were published in April from Freedom Project in the United Kingdom, a £5.2 million ($7.3 million) innovation project was designed to test hybrid heating systems. The results suggest that an automated switch between gas and electricity may deliver a more flexible demand side response (DSR) in the residential setting.

Today, DSR is largely limited to large consumers of electricity that include industrial users that have uninterruptible contract. If DSR is extended to residential consumers, it could extend the DSR resource to reduce the needs for investment in additional generational capacities and grid reinforcements.

In the United Kingdom, the residential sector accounts for one third of the total or 100 terrawatt hours a year. According to statistics from the government, 42.4% of electricity is generated from gas. The hybrid heating system combines the efficiency of gas boilers with external air source heat pumps in order to allow automated switching between gas and electric power when the consumer requires heat for the home.

The air source heat pumps that introduced electrified heating in homes are only used by consumers when the cost of electricity is rather low which only happens when there is a wind or solar source of power generation in the system. During peak demand for electricity, the residential consumer can switch to gas so that they can participate in DSR with UK TSO National Grid that pays aggregators to reduce demand for power. This will enable grid balancing without the need to generate additional power during peak periods.

Meanwhile, if you are still using traditional gas boilers to heat the home in Bournemouth, make sure that it is inspected annually for gas safety or according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Regular inspection will make sure that the boiler does not emit hazardous carbon monoxide that can put your life in danger.

Pakistan Embracing Marketing Through Social Media

With the rate of how technology is advancing, a lot of things in the home, the work space, and in industries have transformed to match up. Marketing and advertising, in particular, has moved forward. Within a few years, marketing has moved from the old-fashioned push strategies, to strategies that attract customers.

As a result, marketers across the globe have worked with multi-channel advertising approaches, in order to bring in customers. A key part of this multi-channel approach is social media marketing, which has shaken up the marketing industry.

As the name implies, social media marketing is the term used for any form of online marketing that utilizes social networking platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube, and companies have been adopting this in order to reach more customers, as well as improve customer engagement.

Traditional marketing is still there, but it’s getting pushed aside, with revenue from digital advertising rapidly overtaking TV ad revenues. This isn’t always the case, however, as some countries, like Pakistan, still have traditional marketing as the primary means of advertising. A lot of companies in Pakistan still don’t have the nuances of digital marketing, and, it is difficult to get a bead on how much revenue the country is generating thanks to social media marketing, though, with how social media and the internet is growing there, it’s a field ripe with opportunity. ExD Pvt. Limited CEO Sajjad Mustafa Syed says that a lot of corporations in Pakistan are adapting social media for their marketing campaigns, and that those that have not yet done so would have to follow suit quickly or be left behind.

The marketing world has been taking advantage of digital marketing to increase engagement, customer communication, access to feedback and develop corporate social responsibility. Video and animation, in particular have a lot of potential.

Chat rooms and chatbots have made corporate communication with customers faster and easier than ever, and marketing is moving towards less traditional channels. One such example is in influencer marketing, which is gaining ground across the world, wherein marketing campaigns are aimed at influential people, not target markets, who then go on to influence the target audience. With social media adopting new trends on an ever changing basis, companies across the world are being forced to adapt in order to keep up with the dynamic sector.

Chinese Investors Still Eyeing Southeast Asian Properties

It is common to see a group of Chinese tourists arriving at two of the biggest airports of Bangkok, Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi. These groups are usually led by a tour guide waving a Chinese flag and they follow a strict itinerary as they go around Thailand. Majority of these tour groups, board a bus where they are transported outside of Bangkok. They then head to either Pattaya or Hua Hin. For companies and businesses, arriving in Bangkok is another story. Some of them are looking for Asoke office space for rent while others have already established their brand in the city.

Not all tourists are travelling to Thailand to see Bangkok because some catch another flight heading to either Phuket or Chiang Mai. The number of Chinese tourist in 2017 was expected to reach 9.5 million by the Ministry of Tourism. The number is higher by three million compared to the number of tourist in 2012.

Sansiri is one of the top Thai developers and according to their head of international business, Cobby Leathers, majority of the sales they are getting in Thailand is because of tourism. Sansiri was able to launch additional three China offices in 2018. Leathers said that Chinese buyers are mainly buying from top local markets such as Phuket, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Bangkok and Hua Hin.

This is despite the reports made by Juwai.com, a property portal for Chinese nationals, indicating that Chinese inquiries are now as strong as before because of the restrictions imposed by Beijing to limit the amount of money that is going out of China. Chinese investors, on the other hand, still prefer to invest in countries in Southeast Asia most especially Vietnam and Thailand.

For the second quarter, Thailand ranked even higher by taking the third for preferred market of Chinese buyers. The first spot is the United States and Australia took the second place. The continued interest of investors in Thailand made it possible for Asoke office space for rent to be filled in no time since the demand is still higher despite the ongoing construction of supply.
