The article focuses on the Look Smart campaign launched by the periodical "Utility Week," in collaboration with Energy Retail Association (ERA) and Energywatch, that aims to prevent the British government to pursue its plan of having energy suppliers provide its customers with free electricity display device (EDD). The campaign advocates a mandate for a phased national rollout of smart metering for electricity and gas. Adam Scorer of Energywatch states that clamp-on devices do not provide full consumer benefits as those of smart meters.
