BEIS consultation on a post-2020 regulatory framework

16 September 2019

Today, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) issued a consultation on a post 2020 policy framework to provide clarity on the Government’s plans beyond the end of 2020. The proposed framework keeps consumers at the heart of the Programme, whilst driving the investment and momentum needed so that even more households, small businesses and the energy system as a whole benefit from smart metering.

The consultation, ‘Delivering a Smart System: A Smart Meter Policy Framework post 2020’ is available here.

BEIS has also published its latest analysis, the Smart Metering Implementation Programme: Cost Benefit Analysis (2019), which shows that after all costs the rollout is set to deliver a £6 billion benefit to the country. In parallel, BEIS also today published a package of research reports including the Consumer Benefit Stocktake and the results of the In Home Display alternative trials.
