5 WAYS SMART METERS WILL BENEFIT BRITAIN
Getting a smart meter is a small step for individual households, but it will add up to big things for Great Britain.
Smart meters will bring Britain’s energy system into the 21st Century. They will form an integral part of the creation of a smart grid which will mean that our energy networks are run in a completely new way.
They will help the nation to conserve energy which benefits the environment. We all want to make big changes to help our planet. And sometimes to make big changes, we have to start small. Smart meters can't solve climate change on their own, but with the smarter, more energy efficient grid they help to create, they are a start.
Our energy supply will be greener because the smart grid will be able to supply more reliable, efficient and low-carbon energy to households and help us all to manage our valuable resources more efficiently.

Smart meters, in partnership with the smart grid, will facilitate new technology-driven alternatives. They will be particularly vital as the transition towards ultra-low emissions electric vehicles gathers speed. Although there are plans for hundreds of thousands more public charging points, much of the time vehicles will be charged up at home.

SAVE THE NATION ENERGY
