Smart Meters will Save Billions of Pounds
Smart energy systemThe Smart Energy GB statement coincided with a separate statement from government the re-emphasised some of the advantages of smart meters and sought to dispel some of the most common misconceptions about the technology. As well as some of the most widely reported benefits – improved energy use knowledge, more accurate billing and the end of estimates – the government also highlighted the role of smart meters in a smarter energy system. “Smart meters are set to be the cornerstone of the smart energy system of the future, potentially saving Great Britain up to £40 billion between now and 2050,” they said. They highlight future co-operation between smart meters and smart household and business gadgets as an area of promise with the technology. “In the future, consumers will be able to choose for their new smart household gadgets and appliances to talk to their smart meter and help reduce their household bills. For example, your smart washing machine can automatically run at the cheapest time of the day, directed by information coming through your smart meter.” OVO Energy has already announced a new smart meter-enabled energy tariff that allows electric vehicle users to charge their vehicles during off-peak hours when there is less strain on the National Grid.
