Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) seeks views on proposals to help non-domestic smart meter customers save energy and manage costs through use of the data from their smart meters.

According to BEIS, 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

BEIS is 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.

Feedback is welcomed from a diverse range of representatives across the energy supply, innovation, business and consumer representative communities.

This consultation closes at 10am on 24th of September 2021.

More information about this consultation and how to take part is available on the Government website.
