To ask Her Majesty's Government whether steps are being taken to allow the sharing of data with third parties at a one-second frequency from day one of the smart meter roll out.
The Government are clear that consumers should be able to access easily their own smart metering energy consumption data, and share this with third parties, should they choose to do so. Consumers will be able to capture their more detailed energy consumption data-at a frequency dependent on the Home Area Network technology used in the metering equipment, but required to be better than 10 seconds-by connecting an additional device to the Home Area Network. The process for connecting a third party device will be secure and consumer friendly. Requirements on how this process will work will be set out in a consultation document due to be published shortly.
