Description: By the end of 2020 every household and small business will have been offered Smart electricity and gas meters. Smart Meters will give consumers up-to-date information about how much gas and/or electricity they have used in pounds and pence, as well as units of energy. Smart meters will have benefits for consumers, suppliers and energy networks. Consumers will have near real-time information about their energy use, enabling them to monitor and manage their energy consumption, save money and reduce carbon emissions. Switching between suppliers will also be made simpler and faster. Energy suppliers will have access to accurate data for billing and will be able to offer a wider range of services and tariffs. Energy networks will have better information to manage and plan current activities and support the move towards the development of a smart grid.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: A MPA Gate 0 Review in March 2015 assessed the Programme as Amber. This reflected the good progress made since the last Gate Review in 2014, but acknowledged that there remained a number of areas requiring close management attention by the DECC programme team. Action is underway or complete against all recommendations. The Programme needs to continue to work closely with multiple cross-industry delivery partners to ensure Programme success.
