What is AMR Smart Metering?

Find out how AMR technology is revolutionising the business electricity market

In December 2009, the United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change announced its intention to have smart meters in all homes and businesses by 2020. Smart meters are the next generation of electricity meter. They will bring about the end of estimated utility bills and meter readings and provide accurate information on the amount of electricity and gas being used. Smart energy meters will empower customers to make choices on how much energy they use.
