The issue about not being able to move supplier is a valid one. I had smart meters installed by one supplier. I then switched to British Gas to get a better deal. The meter is not compatible with them so now I have to take meter readings from my smart meter (!) or get British Gas compatible smart meters installed. This would certainly put people off and I am now annoyed I got them fitted in the first place. If you plan to switch regularly (the main way to save money) then smart meters are not an option until they are generic.

I just had my own smart meter fitted on Friday. Loving it and already spotting where £ can be saved. The guy who fitted it said one thing that put people off was concerns about being able to move supplier. However I understand this is nor really an obstacle at all. Also why don't we have smart Water meters. I'm sure great savings could be made there.

'Reason for the drop weekend bad publicityPlagued by delays' Benefits of smart meter rollout risk being SLASHED by repeated issuesA PARLIAMENTARY report has warned that the roll-out of smart meters across the UK risks being seriously delayed and may fail to deliver the cost benefits the project had previously promised.The British Infrastructure Group of Parliamentarians (BIG) warned that the £11 billion project to distribute 53 million smart meters to 30 million homes and businesses by 2020 had been "plagued by repeated delays and cost increases".Grant Shapps, Conservative MP and the BIG chairman, said: "Although the entire programme has been funded by customers through higher energy bills, unlike energy suppliers themselves, they are not presently guaranteed to see the majority of the savings that do materialise."This report calls on the UK Government to immediately review the progress of roll-out, and intervene to tackle its points of failure and risk."The BIG report warned that benefits of the programme were "likely to be slashed even further" and the roll-out plans were "almost certain" to miss the 2020 deadline.

Yes countless, and could there also be scope for households with solar panels using the power created to charge their electric cars and still sell surplus back to the grid, all measured by smart meters?

This is a fascinating concept that will give the big expensive electricity producers a run for their money hxxp://brooklynmicrogrid.com. Nothing like disrupting an expensive market, which could create a new non-centralised market for anyone who can produce electricity from solar panels/ farms etc . I can see metres playing a central role when selling electricity back to the grid or in years to come perhaps to the village up the road!

Full page article in S Tel. p20 addressing some of the concerns raised previously about the security of SMs. A number of myths debunked. Concluding sentence...'Not only are smart meters hard to hack, there would be no point in doing it anyway'.

Thx. The £150m raise last year reduced net debt and allowed for a big increase in capital expenditure. Energy suppliers need to get their skates on to install smart meters by the 2020 deadline. Panmure has 1060p target.

People with smart meters say smart is better 27th March 2018 Smart Energy GB today publishes Smart energy outlook, the largest independent survey of national public opinion on energy and smart meters. The biannual nationwide poll into the opinions of almost 10,000 people in Great Britain, carried out by Populus, provides clear evidence that the overwhelming majority of customers who have smart meters installed in their homes are happy with them. It comes as new official figures published by the government today show that over 11 million smart meters have now been installed in homes across Great Britain. Smart meters replace the traditional analogue meters we currently have in our homes. They enable accurate bills, near real time information on energy use and greater control over the way we buy and use energy. The Outlook survey found: Around three quarters (73 per cent) of people with a smart meter would recommend one to friends, family or neighbours. That’s equivalent to 6.3 million people who would recommend a smart meter The majority (82 per cent) of people with smart meters say they have a better idea of what they are spending on energy More than eight in ten (81 per cent) of people with a smart meter think their energy bill is accurate compared to only 67 per cent with a traditional analogue meter More than eight in ten (82 per cent) of people with smart meters have taken steps to reduce energy waste One in three (33 per cent) of people with a smart meter are now starting discussions to encourage others in their household to use less energy htTps://www.smartenergygb.org/en/resources/press-centre/press-releases-folder/smart-energy-outlook-march18?tab=1&docspage=1 Have taken a position here recently.

Just looked back at my 2017 prediction here: hTtps://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=25575081&from=126#firstpost Not too far off although I didn't take into account the interest charges that knocked the PBT. £6.84 price target seemed pretty accurate.

One of the best AIM stocks. Management reassuringly boring and that's a major positive.
