Smart Metering is FCUKED

The Fiendishly Complicated United Kingdom Enduring Deployment of smart meters hit a problem earlier this year when the Government introduced a twelve month delay. You might have expected the Government would have spent some time reviewing what had gone wrong. If they had, it would have become clear that the program was out of control. Under the surface, too many cooks had ratcheted up the technical complexity to the point where it is no longer fit for purpose. As a result, it’s lining up to be the next major Government IT disaster. Despite that, it appears that no-one wants to point out that the Smart Metering Emperor is stark naked.
This report looks at what has gone wrong, turning a British lead into something that will deliver nothing except even higher energy bills for consumers.
