An energy-industry led programme which aims to roll-out approximately 53 million smart electricity and gas meters to domestic properties and non-domestic sites in Great Britain. The aim of the SMIP is to provide consumers with “real time” information on their energy consumption to help them:
– control and manage their energy use;
– save money and reduce carbon emissions;
– bring an end to estimated billing; and
– make informed purchasing decisions reducing the barriers to switching between suppliers.
