Consultation description

On 27 July 2010, the Government with Ofgem published a prospectus containing proposals for the delivery of electricity and gas smart metering in Great Britain. This covered both domestic households and small and medium non-domestic sites.

The prospectus document, which represented the joint views of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (GEMA), set out proposals for and asked for views on how smart metering will be delivered.

This consultation is now closed and the Government would like to thank respondents for their contributions.

On 30 March 2011, the Government and Ofgem jointly published the Government’s Response to the Smart Meter prospectus.

The document sets out the Government’s conclusions in response to the questions asked in the prospectus, including those in relation to: the overall strategy and timetable for the rollout, the benefits smart meters should provide for consumers and the energy industry, and the strategy for establishing the communications needed to support the national rollout.

It also describes the Government’s approach to updating consumer protections so they remain relevant for the smart world, including data access rules.

The prospectus response and supporting material are below on this page.
