Smart Energy GB in Communities

Hello,

When we have been looking through the reports you have been submitted for delivery in September and October, we can see that you are doing a lot of work around smart meters and helping vulnerable households about the the choices involved with installing a smart meter.  We therefore thought it might be helpful for you to have a bit more information about National Energy Action's (NEA) work that might help you support your community with advice about smart meters. 

Smart Energy GB in Communities, which is being delivered by a consortium of charities led by national fuel poverty charity NEA, is part of Smart Energy GB’s consumer engagement campaign helping to inform and inspire people about smart meters and the positive changes they can bring.  Through Smart Energy GB in Communities NEA is partnering with regional and local organisations from the voluntary, private and public sectors, to engage hard to reach individuals and help them understand how they can benefit from smart meters.  The focus for 2016 is on partners who work with the following priority groups:

  • District heating customers
  • Lack of proficiency in English or Welsh
  • Lacking basic digital skills
  • Learning disability
  • Low literacy
  • Memory impairment
  • No personal internet access
  • Off-gas grid customers
  • Prepay customers
  • Private tenants
  • Severe or profound deafness
  • Social housing tenants

If you work with any of these groups and would like to find out more about becoming a partner in the campaign or receiving a FREE staff briefing on the smart meter roll-out, please contact communities@nea.org.uk. NEA can also provide information about potential grants, training and resources to support your organisation’s engagement with the campaign.
