Davey Comments on Scottish Energy Report

SmartMeters.com - Sun, 04/20/2014 - 06:25
The UK Government has published the “Scotland Analysis: Energy” report, which examines the potential impact of Scottish independence on Great Britain’s energy industry. The paper argues that the current single market has driven the Scottish energy industry’s success, has helped to keep Scottish energy bills down, and is the most effective way of managing energy liabilities. The paper concludes that the current integrated GB energy system could not continue as it is now if Scotland became a separate independent state.

Ofgem Announces New Reform

SmartMeters.com - Sun, 04/20/2014 - 06:24
The Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) has announced a project to reform the industry’s settlement arrangements, which give suppliers incentives to buy energy to meet the power their customers consume every half hour throughout the day. Up to now, that half hour amount is estimated by taking meter readings to determine the consumer’s total energy consumption then breaking up between half-hour periods. But since smart meters can record actual consumption each half hour, there is no longer a need to estimate it.
