Study funded by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer ProtectionNew ConPolicy project about using AI to improve heating checks – Empowerment through a smart evaluation of the heating cost settlement

The joint project aims to develop a prototype application that will potentially help some 16 million households to better understand their heating bill and act in accordance with the assessments. In their current form, heating bills are often not prepared in an understandable way, as each metering service provider uses different formats and terminology. As a result, errors are not detected, energy and services are purchased overpriced, and incentives to save energy are not provided. This costs consumers billions of euros annually and causes unnecessary tons of CO2.

Therefore, this project aims at transforming the classical heating bill into understandable and transparent, comprehensible statements and evaluations by using AI with the help of a prototypical application. ConPolicy is especially responsible for the user orientation of the AI application.

The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV).
