Smart Meter Rollout Update from Ofgem

The Government has published its decision to extend the existing smart meter rollout obligation for six months as well as its decision on a new regulatory framework. Energy suppliers will now be required to take all reasonable steps to roll out smart meters to all their domestic and small non-domestic customers by 30 June 2021 in line with public health and Government guidance.

For larger suppliers, Ofgem will be asking for updated rollout plans to reflect the extension.

Smart metering brings immediate benefits to businesses by helping to take control of energy usage and is a key factor for the transition to a more flexible energy market and the delivery of net zero emissions by 2050.
