This open letter, issued jointly by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Ofgem, clarifies how we will act in relation to the design, implementation, operation and regulation of the Programme. Following a review of the governance of the Smart Metering Implementation Programme by David Hendon in June this year, we believe it is important to make a clear statement to industry about our respective roles.

The letter has also been published on the Ofgem website.
