Consultation description

Energy suppliers are required to take all reasonable steps to install smart meters in GB domestic and SME premises by the end of 2020. This includes installations in 5% of properties, including some multi-dwelling units, where additional ‘range extending’ technology might be required to establish a Home Area Network (HAN) to allow consumer devices to be connected to smart metering equipment. This consultation considers whether any changes need to be made to the existing regulatory framework to ensure that a HAN is provided in all property types.
