Hendry details £11.7bn smart meter programme

The UK energy industry is gearing for the single biggest revolution since coal gas was replaced by clean burning North Sea natural gas, Energy Minister Charles Hendry today (Thursday) said.

The introduction of some 53 million smartmeters to more than 30 million homes and businesses is a key priority for the Coalition Government, and it is hoped that by providing accurate, real-time information of electricity and gas usage, homes can repond, helping to reduce their energy usage and cut emissions.

The move will also generate thousands of green jobs and mark a significant investment in the green economy.
