Energy: Smart Meters

Volume 698: debated on Wednesday 6 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they intend to make it a requirement for smart meters to be in all homes by 2017, as outlined in the energy White Paper; and how they will go about this. [HL1661]

In the energy White Paper, the Government set out their expectation that all homes would have smart meters within 10 years. In August 2007, as part of its consultation on metering and billing, it sought detailed views about the range of issues surrounding smart metering. It will set out its views on next steps shortly.
