Smart Energy GB to attend autumn party conferences

Smart meters are an essential part of any set of policy solutions for energy. By bringing an end to estimated bills and showing us what we’re spending in pounds and pence, they will help consumers take control over how they buy and use their gas and electricity. We hope you’ll be able to come and talk to our team at our exhibition stand, or come along to one of our panel discussion events.

About Smart Energy GB

Smart Energy GB is the not-for-profit campaign for the national smart meter rollout. It’s our task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national rollout and how to use their new meters to get their gas and electricity under control. Our national campaign has already begun and will reach all households and microbusinesses in England, Scotland and Wales.

About smart meters and the rollout

Smart meters will replace the traditional meters we currently have in our homes. They will provide consumers with accurate bills, near real time information on energy usage in pounds and pence, and greater control over their gas and electricity. The smart meter rollout is an essential technology upgrade, unprecedented in its scale, to improve Great Britain’s energy infrastructure. Between now and 2020, every home and small business across England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier. More than 1.6 million smart meters have already been installed. To find out how you can get a smart meter from your energy supplier please visit
