Detail of outcome
The government response to the consultation on Home Area Network Installations confirms that energy suppliers will be required to take all reasonable steps to establish a SMETS compliant HAN in all consumer premises and explains the government’s strategy to ensure the availability of HAN solutions for all GB property types.
The revised supply licence conditions are also published here; these will require energy suppliers to establish a SMETS compliant HAN.
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.
