smart meters 'will help fight climate change'

smart meters 'will help fight climate change'

Rolling out smart meters across British households is a key step in the battle against climate change, it has been claimed.

Stephen Cunningham, UK and Ireland chief executive for smart meter manufacturer Landis+Gyr, observed on the BBC that the systems provide more accurate readings.

He wrote on the news provider's Green Room blog that the technology gives users up-to-date information on their energy usage and how much it is costing them.

"Consumers benefit from being able to manage and reduce their energy bills, and, crucially, their household's carbon footprint. Put simply, what you can measure, you can manage," Mr Cunningham explained.

"By clearly communicating the cost of every day actions, such as boiling the kettle, consumers are empowered to act. The impact of the UK government's decision should not be underestimated."

Mr Cunningham's comments come after an announcement from the government revealed its plans to roll out smart meters in all UK homes by 2020.
