Smart & Fair

The Smart & Fair programme was established with funding from Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks and National Grid Electricity Distribution in 2019. It began by researching the capabilities consumers need to participate in and benefit from the smart flexibility energy system.

This page contains links to reports from phases 1 and 2 of the programme.

The Phase 2 report (February 2024) details how we have been using our smart energy capabilities lens to understand how different types of households can participate in and benefit from the low carbon transition.

The Phase 1 report sets out the results of the earlier stages of Smart & Fair and describes the analytical framework and associated tools developed to examine how the transition to a net zero energy system can be done in ways which are both ‘smart’ and ‘fair’. In includes a proposed set of guidelines for smart energy practitioners to adopt and apply. The report concludes with recommendations for initial actions by Ofgem, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), energy practitioners and consumer advocates and an outline of our plans for Phase Two of the programme.
