Director of Corporate Affairs at Smart Energy GB, Robert Cheesewright, said:
"Parliamentary scrutiny of progress is vital, because completing Britain's smart meter rollout is non-negotiable if we want to deal with the potential devastating effects of climate change and build an energy system for the future. The latest data shows that almost 13 million people across Britain want to upgrade to smart meters in the next six months, so we share consumers' frustration that technical and logistical issues are stopping many people from experiencing the benefits smart meters bring. It's time for everyone involved to make sure that there are no further delays."
