Smart Meter Madness (8): 10m down, 40m to go

picThe latest stats published yesterday by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on progress with the UK smart meter rollout make, as ever, interesting reading. According to BEIS' own numbers, at current course and speed the legacy meter replacement programme – planned to be done and dusted in just two years' time – will not complete until mid-2026.

Anthony Miller, TechMarketView Managing Partner and self-appointed 'antidote to smart meter hype', takes a harsh look (Ed: surely not!) at the reality of why the Government's misguided, multibillion-pound programme is doomed never to provide the proposed benefits, either for the energy supply industry or for consumers.
