ABSTRACT
The author comments on the proposed smart energy metering in Great Britain. According to her, if people are to deliver carbon savings from households, consumers need to change the way they think about energy use. Most people in the industry would agree that advanced technology is vital to Britain's energy conservation plans, but the author believes the current proposals fall some way short of making the best use of proven technology.
