Timely and effective consumer engagement will be vital to ensure that consumers benefit from smart meters. The Smart Meters Implementation Programme has been working on the development of a strategy for consumer engagement and we will publish a consultation on the strategy in spring, which will include proposals on the objectives and activities for consumer engagement. Among these will be activities which need to be undertaken between now and the start of mass rollout to help ensure that suppliers can gain access to domestic properties for the installation of smart meters.
