Smart Energy GB is the UK Government-backed campaign for a smarter Britain. We work to help you understand smart meters and their rollout across England, Scotland and Wales, and to show you how your smart meter could make you more efficient with your energy use.

What is a smart meter?

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being rolled out across Great Britain. They show you how much energy you are using in pounds and pence.

Will a smart meter help me?

A smart meter can help us to identify situations where we're using a lot of energy and might want to make changes to this. If you use the information shown on your in-home display to reduce your energy use, you could cut costs and become more energy efficient.

Preparing for installation

Your energy supplier will contact you before your installation to let you know what to expect, but we also have a useful guide to help you prepare.
