The Government’s vision is for every home in Great Britain to have smart energy meters, with businesses and public sector users also having smart or advanced energy metering suited to their needs. To implement this vision, the Government has established a central change programme - the Smart Metering Implementation Programme.
Ofgem E-Serve led the policy design phase of the central programme on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). In July 2010 we published a Prospectus, setting out for consultation a range of proposals for the rollout of electricity and gas smart metering.
The response to consultation was published in March 2011. It set out the Government’s conclusions on the policy design for the rollout. This marked the end of the policy design phase. Since April 2011, DECC has been directly responsible for managing the implementation of the programme. All queries relating to the programme should be directed to DECC; please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
