Partner Case Studies
From national organisations to regional charities and local community groups, our partnership's team works with partners all across Britain, to help spread the word on smart meters.
We're here at Rotherham Show where we're promoting what we do ourselves. Working mainly with people with learning disabilities and autism and other vulnerable adults who have enduring mental health problems, but also supporting the use of smart meters in the home.
If you get a smart meter, you should get an accurate energy reading. It also helps the budget a bit. It's not just a display on your living room somewhere. It's also help you not worry about a bill coming through your post. When you look, it tells you how much you're using and how much you've got on your electric and gas.
Accessible information like this with pictures as well that draw on the understanding, brilliant. If you were to give me something that's not easy read, I'm probably just going to throw it in the bin.
I know full well I won't be able to understand it. I thought the information that Victoria gave us was absolutely amazing to be quite honest. I think those smart meters are brilliant.
Together with our partners we are working towards a smarter and greener Great Britain. In 2021 we worked with 30 regional partners, and 6 national partners. Here are some of their experiences in working with us.
In Communities Programme
Home Energy Efficiency Training (HEET)
HEET is a community based not for profit organisation working in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Enfield.
Its mission is to work with the community to make the homes of local people safe and healthy with affordable fuel bills and low carbon emissions.
Tom Ruxton, Co-ordinator
"The fund has supported HEET by providing us with the capacity and resources to hold conversations with local residents about smart meters. The Fund has allowed us to organise activities, such as advice sessions at flu clinics, that have enabled us to reach older individuals within the community. Having funding from Smart Energy GB has ensured that messaging about smart meters always forms part of our conversation with residents.
This is the direct impact our partnership had on our community:"
"I'm so pleased to have a smart meter. I would never have asked for one but Alex (from HEET) suggested it would be a good idea because all the bills I showed him were estimated. My eyesight isn't very good so it's difficult for me to take readings and I don't like hassling my son."
Royal Horticultural Society
"In 2020 we partnered with Smart Energy GB in a digital capacity, to educate our members on the benefits of smart meters for the environment. Together we developed advertorials, social media posts, and digital display banners.
We all want to do our bit to be environmentally friendly and contribute to a greener world. This partnership encouraged our supporters to consider how small individual actions or changes, such as getting and using a smart meter can help Britain achieve its net zero carbon emissions target by 2050."
