As a drive to reduce energy consumption and create awareness around electricity and gas consumption, every home in Great Britain will have a smart electricity and gas meter by 2019. Smart meters will replace traditional electricity and gas meters allowing suppliers to receive consumption data without having to visit your home. You will also receive an in-home display which will show your energy consumption real time. This will help you to control and manage your energy use and save money.
