Smart Energy GB, the voice of Britain’s smart meter rollout, has today published A smart route to change, a white paper setting out how everyone involved in Britain’s smart meter rollout should apply behavioural science to help everyone in the country to change their energy use for the better.
Sacha Deshmukh, Chief Executive of Smart Energy GB, said:
“The way we all buy gas and electricity is changing for the better. The smart meter rollout in Great Britain offers a unique opportunity to support consumers in taking control of their gas and electricity, and reducing their energy waste. It’s also a chance for Britain to lead the world in demonstrating that deep and sustained changes in behaviour in energy are possible. A smart route to change is an important expression of our view of best practice that all involved in the smart meter rollout can work together to apply.”

About Smart Energy GB
Smart Energy GB is the voice of the 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 3.5 million smart meters have already been installed. To find out how you can get a smart meter from your energy supplier, pick up a leaflet from your local Post Office branch or visit this page.
