Are smart meter delays hindering the UK’s 2020 green target? – Find out at Smart Metering UK & Ireland 2009!


The UK Government aims to install smart meters by 2020, the same year in which Ministers are trying to meet a target of generating 15% of the UK’s energy from renewable sources. The Government approved the principle a smart meter roll-out last year, but an announcement of how it will be done is still pending.

The ‘big six’ support smart meter roll-out. However, the question still remaining is: How should this project be rolled out? UK utilities are warning that delays in fitting the technology could hinder the UK’s progress towards the 2020 climate change targets.

Smart Metering UK & Ireland is scheduled to run further Government announcements, therefore delivering real value with discussions focused around the next steps towards successful roll-out. These changes will have massive implications for business models and processes. Smart metering transforms energy companies, driving new innovative business offerings and propositions for customers.
