Maximising non-domestic smart meter consumer benefits, improving the data offer and enabling innovation

22 July 2021

We’re consulting on proposals to improve the smart meter data offer for non-domestic energy consumers. The proposals would:

  • ensure non-domestic smart meter customers are provided with engaging feedback on their energy consumption so that they can save energy and manage costs
  • require energy suppliers to provide non-domestic smart meter customers with regular free information about their energy consumption, based on the data from their smart meter
  • make it easier for non-domestic customers to share their data with third party innovators (acting with their consent) to support energy saving and net zero initiatives
  • make it easier for third parties acting with customer consent to access the data they need to enter the market and deliver services to non-domestic smart meter customers

We’re also seeking more general views on how best government can support industry to drive forward innovation in the market for non-domestic smart meter data-driven services.

We welcome views on these proposals, including feedback from a diverse range of representatives across the energy supply, innovation, business and consumer representative communities.
