Get SMART-UP: Smart meters and behaviour change in vulnerable households
23 May 2018, 9.30am-2.00pm
Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre, London
The smart meter rollout is now underway, with the Government committing to offering every home a smart meter by 2020. Smart metering has the potential to provide real benefits for vulnerable and low-income households, but only if these individuals are effectively engaged and supported throughout the smart meter journey.
This seminar will provide an update on the rollout and in particular current policy and practice to engage and support vulnerable householders. It will also share some of the research findings and insights from the EU-funded SMART-UP project, which has been exploring how providing additional support with using smart meters can help to instigate energy-related behaviour change in vulnerable households. In addition, it will provide the opportunity for delegates to share their own experiences of engaging and supporting vulnerable smart meter consumers which will be used to help inform future policy and practice.
The event is organised by NEA free to attend. It is relevant to anyone with an interest in policy, practice and research around smart metering, vulnerable customers and energy-related behaviour change, including representatives from housing associations, local authorities, frontline and community agencies, energy suppliers and network operators. Lunch will be provided.
