Jeremy Cryer, energy spokesperson at, said:

“This is a welcome move by Ofgem and demonstrates how advances in technology can be employed to enable consumers to manage their energy use more effectively.

Providing smart meters and reforming time-of-use tariffs should allow consumers to take advantage of periods of cheaper electricity which will hopefully help to bring down their bills. We would urge all energy providers to embrace this initiative and work closely with Ofgem to bring the benefits to customers sooner rather than later.”
