Abstract

Despite the industry promises of improved grid management and reduced carbon emissions, the research on metering provides conflicting evidence with regards to its effectiveness. Metering can have a positive impact on resource efficiency provided that it improves the management of the grid and leads to changes at the household level (e.g., decrease in consumption, purchase of smart equipment, change in social norms) (Bradley et al., 2016; Buchanan et al., 2015). Therefore, the success of the UK Smart Metering Implementation Programme is highly contingent on a successful communication strategy.
