Energy UK comments on launch of BEIS Smart Meter Post 2020 consultation
Responding to the BEIS Smart Meter Post 2020 Consultation, Energy UK’s chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:
“Smart meters are essential if we are to deliver the flexible energy system that will help us to achieve our net-zero target by 2050, so we welcome greater clarity on the post-2020 policy landscape.
“Suppliers have been working tirelessly to meet the 2020 deadline and offer all households a smart meter so that as many customers as possible can benefit by saving energy and money - as millions of smart meter owners have already reported.
“The energy sector is committed to working with the Government and other partners to complete the rollout so we will now consider the proposals in detail to ensure they are deliverable and do not place unreasonable costs on consumers.”
