Smart Energy GB responds to the National Audit Office report on smart meters published on Friday 23rd November 2018
Responding to the National Audit Office report on smart meters Robert Cheesewright, Director of Corporate Affairs at Smart Energy GB, said:
"Britain's smart meter rollout is a hugely complex and challenging infrastructure upgrade, but we must not lose sight of the bigger picture which is that we urgently need a modern, connected energy system with smart meters at its heart.
"That's why millions of smart meters have already been installed and they are paving the way for more clean and renewable energy and the widespread take-up of electric vehicles.
"The alternative is that we are stuck with estimated, inaccurate bills from an outdated system that can no longer keep up with the way we use gas and electricity in the 21st century."
