Commenting on the five-year extension to powers to make changes to smart meter regulations, Rob Doepel, EY Energy Partner, says:

“The decision to extend powers to amend smart meter regulations is a prudent move, given both the speed of change in meter technology and the need to ensure the rollout is run as efficiently and effectively as possible for UK customers.  

“We would hope that the detail of the Bill would include provisions to simplify the deployment challenge and enable greater collaboration between suppliers to deliver this critical upgrade to the UK's energy infrastructure.”
