The AECB responds here to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee's (STC's) call for evidence on smart meters. In particular:

  • How smart meters can be expected to affect consumer behaviour, in terms of reducing energy consumption and buying more energy-efficient products
  •  How levels of engagement with In-Home Displays change over time
  •  The extent to which Time of Use Tariffs can be expected to alter patterns of energy usage during the day
  •  Evidence on the expected net savings for the consumer over time, including in the context of the longevity and technical capability of the smart meter technology being rolled out, and whether similar savings could be achieved by other means
  •  Evidence of how data from smart meters can be used to optimise national energy generation and storage
  • Evidence on the security of smart meters, and the ability of suppliers to maintain security levels in the future
