Smart meter policy framework post 2020 - BEIS

BEIS is consulting on a number of proposals to help inform the policy framework for energy suppliers to continue installing smart meters after 31 December 2020, when the current rollout duty ends. This includes proposals for changing the Smart Energy Code (SEC) to modify the way in which the Data Communications Company (DCC) charges for its services after 2020.

Additionally, we are seeking more general views on:

  • the future of coordinated consumer engagement activity beyond 2020, in the context of increasing numbers of households and small businesses having smart meters
  • potential future policy measures to complement any policy framework post 2020 including initiatives to ensure that consumer benefits are maintained.

Deadline for responses: 11 November 2019
