ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the British government to put a smart utility meter in every home in the country by the end of 2020. It notes that the government conceives that the smart meters will help the consumers to lessen their energy consumption by 2%, which corresponds to the amount of 100 million pound in bill cuts by 2020. The plan was supported by various companies such as Sentec Inc., believing that the smart metering will enable the government to promote lesser carbon emissions.
