Book Description

Great Britain is making a strong commitment to smart meters and the role of smart meters as a focal point for smart energy management in homes. This Information Paper outlines the options available for automatic meter reading, monitoring and management and the challenges in implementing these technologies.

Several national initiatives are running in parallel with the smart meter programme. Coordinating these programmes will maximise the return on the substantial investment for each programme. The Paper aims to inform building and energy professionals and building owners about the exciting opportunities available through implementing smart meter technology.
