What can we offer?

Through the Smart Energy GB in Communities programme, we are offering a range of advice and support to help engage a network of enthusiastic partners and ensure a wide outreach. This includes:

  • The Smart Energy GB in Communities fund which is being administered by CAF to provide support for organisations delivering projects and activities that engage their communities with the campaign. You can find more information on the funding opportunities by clicking here.
  • NEA and EAS are delivering a limited programme of support including full day accredited training across the regions in Great Britain, bespoke support, tailored bite size information briefings, and access to resources. Please contact us to find out more here.

Free leaflets to help you spread the word about smart meters

If you know of someone who could benefit from a smart meter but who needs help understanding how to get one, or what they are, Smart Energy GB have free printed leaflets and downloadable materials available to help explain smart meters and the national rollout.

Smart Energy GB’s resource centre offers free printed informational leaflets explaining what smart meters are and how to get one. The printed leaflets are available for those reaching people who may need additional support to engage with the smart meter rollout.

The story so far …

During 2016 we delivered 44 training courses, to 439 smart meter Champions across England, Wales and Scotland, to enable them to provide advice, guidance and support to their beneficiaries on understanding and benefiting from the smart meter rollout. Champions reported reaching c. 150,000 individuals across the 12 priority groups targeted in 2016, which were made up of a wide range of vulnerable and hard to reach groups.

As well as this we worked with several hundred regional and local organisations to raise awareness of the rollout and reached 2234 frontline workers via bite size briefing sessions.

Following on from the success of the campaign in 2016 Smart Energy GB have spent the last few months analysing the data and evaluation surrounding the performance of the campaign, to determine the role for partnerships in 2017.

The insight on the campaign performance in 2016 showed that many vulnerable audiences are more effectively activated by the core campaign than anticipated and as a result Smart Energy GB are focusing their partnership activity at over 65 offline audiences, where the data shows the core campaign needs particular extra support.

To make sure our campaign is reaching everyone in the most effective way, we will be collecting information about all our activities and the activities of partners, if you would like to help make the campaign a success and work with our 2017 priority group please contact us at or complete the contact us form below.
