Chamber Low Carbon are delighted to welcome Liz Harper from Smart Energy GB. Liz will be joining us to explain the importance of smart meters for businesses.
We all are aware the High Street shops are under a lot of pressure at the moment. However, there are some things that businesses can do to help them manage their finances.
Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters which are currently being rolled out in homes and small businesses across Great Britain by energy suppliers. They enable accurate billing, helping to take the stress out of budgeting and putting you back in control. Plus, smart meters send your gas and electricity readings directly to your energy supplier, so you don’t have to.
As well as giving you more control over your businesses’ energy spend, smart meters are the foundation for a smarter and more flexible energy system, and with future demands for electricity set to increase, it has never been more important to upgrade our energy system to one that is more sustainable and less reliant on non-renewable fuel sources.
We will hear from a businesses that has upgraded to smart meters and how they have benefited.
