The Department of Energy and Climate Change has published a consultation on the Smart Metering Implementation Programme. The Consultation is seeking views on the proposed change of timing of the review of the smart metering Data Access and Privacy Framework. The Framework determines access levels that suppliers, network operators and third parties have to energy consumption data from smart meters, the purpose for which they can use it and the choices consumers will have about it. The Department of Energy and Climate Change proposes that the Framework be completed in 2018 rather than by June 2016.
