Description: The Government's vision is for every home in Great Britain to have smart electricity and gas meters by 2020. 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.
