Smart metering can transform retail markets to the benefit of consumers through easy access to consumption data, innovative products and better customer service. But it can also present new challenges. This project seeks to ensure that regulation enables consumers to engage effectively in smarter markets.
The project is currently exploring the risks and opportunities that smarter markets present and how existing arrangements may need to adapt. In January 2013, we held a workshop to discuss these issues with stakeholders.
