Smart & Fair
Includes: Phase 1 Report; Offer Profiling Tool; Guidelines for smart energy practitioners and commissioners (first draft)
Smart & Fair was established with funding from Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks and National Grid Electricity Distribution. It’s a research programme to explore a number of critical questions arising from the profound changes to the UK’s energy system that are a prerequisite of the shift to zero-carbon and how this can be achieved equitably and with the needs of all energy users taken into account.
What, for example, does ‘No one should be left behind’ mean in practical terms in the context of the energy system transition? And what are the implications of seeking to ensure that all consumers can ‘keep up’ or, if they can’t, are protected in some way?
