It strikes me that the Queen's building is doing badly for gas this week. I suspect it's because the weather is unseasonally mild... The building does indeed seem warm, too. I wonder what is to be done?
I could monitor the temperature again, but it seems that in the heating season, the boiler is going to fire around 06:30 anyway and peak around 300 kWh per half hour anyway - despite the model indicating that it should be around half that given the outside temperature.
I wonder - how often is the outside temperature sampled? Is it every half hour like the meter reading?
It looks like we're in for a lot of red if the temperature stays fairly high outside.

The boilers have been replaced in Queens I believe.

Indeed they have, but one would hope that wouldn't make things worse - @DMU_Energy suggests that we should in fact be able to modulate heating input better. Maybe we'll put this down to teething troubles for now...
