Smart meters allow businesses to closely track their energy usage and minimise wastage, saving money and creating a more sustainable energy grid.
Energy prices are at the top of everyone’s agenda at the moment, including businesses. In the current climate it’s understandable that energy managers, procurement teams and facilities professionals want as much clarity as possible on how much they spend on energy, and where they spend it.
According to thinktank Green Alliance, “wasted energy”, i.e. excess energy consumed through a lack of efficiency, could be costing UK businesses around £60m each year1. Wasted energy in the City of London alone could power over 65,000 homes, emitting the same amount of carbon annually as 46,000 cars2.
Smart meters can be a helpful way for businesses to keep track of their energy usage, saving both time and money by removing the need for manual meter readings and avoiding estimated invoices.
As part of the UK Government’s smart meter roll out, we’re on a mission to get eligible customers switched on to second-generation (SMETS2) smart meters, ensuring they can keep a close eye on what they’re using, minimise energy spend, and create a more sustainable approach to energy usage in the UK. SMETS2 meters in particular are designed to be universal and work across the industry, allowing you to easily to switch providers and keep the same smart meter.
