Government reveals smart meter deadline

Monday, November 25, 2013

The Government has given a deadline of autumn 2015 for delivery of smart metering services across the UK by energy companies.

Baroness Verma, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, said: “By autumn 2015 we expect all major energy suppliers to offer smart metering services”.

She added that the complete rollout should be finalised by 2020, with the program being advertised as a transformational enabler for customers, in changing how they manage their energy usage.

Currently over 100,000 smart meters have been installed, with the expected figure to rise to over 53 million at the end of the project.
