Smart Energy GB publishes updated paper: Smart energy for all

10th July 2015

The paper, which was put out for consultation in April this year, will inform Smart Energy GB’s work with individuals and communities who have characteristics that may act as barriers to experiencing the benefits of smart meters. These include being blind or partially sighted, not speaking English or Welsh proficiently, being off the gas grid, or living in rented accommodation. The findings of the paper will help ensure that absolutely no one is left behind during the smart meter roll-out.

Smart energy for all is published in English and in Welsh. Read the full paper.

About Smart Energy GB

Smart Energy GB is the not-for-profit campaign for the national smart meter rollout. It’s our task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national rollout and how to use their new meters to get their gas and electricity under control. Our national campaign has already begun and will reach all households and microbusinesses in England, Scotland and Wales. 

About smart meters and the rollout

Smart meters will replace the traditional meters we currently have in our homes. They will provide consumers with accurate bills, near real time information on energy usage in pounds and pence, and greater control over their gas and electricity. The smart meter rollout is an essential technology upgrade, unprecedented in its scale, to improve Great Britain’s energy infrastructure. Between now and 2020, everyone across England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier at no extra cost. More than 1.6 million smart meters have already been installed in homes and microbusinesses. Find out how you can get a smart meter from your energy supplier.
