The Government plans to roll-out smart meters across the UK. These meters will record the amount of gas and electricity you use minute-by-minute in your house, as well as how much it costs. This information will help us make an informed choice about our energy supplier – but is it worth the £11bn price tag?
There are now cheaper, more efficient technological solutions for recording and relaying this energy data. How about accessing this information through a smartphone app rather than an in-home display? In light of technological developments, the Government should now strongly reconsider the smart meter roll-out as I've written in an article for The Register this morning.
