When you’re upgrading the technology and appliances in your home, do you ever think about how Great Britain is upgrading its infrastructure to power these appliances?
Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters being installed by energy suppliers in every home in England, Scotland and Wales.
Smart meters will bring Britain’s energy system into the 21st Century. The data they are able to generate allows our energy system to understand how much energy is being used-and when and where-across Great Britain. This means energy networks can react more rapidly to energy demand across the country and waste will be significantly reduced.
They also pave the way fora greener energy supply because the smart energy system will be able to supply more reliable, efficient and low-carbon energy to households and help us all to manage our valuable resources more efficiently.
