Convened by Sustainability First and the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), the Smart Meter Energy Data Public Interest Advisory Group (PIAG) brings together a range of public interest stakeholders to hold a policy dialogue around:

How smart meter data can be put to best use to further public policy goals and aid in the energy transition.
Whether, and under what conditions, the data might be accessed by Government and other organisations for public interest purposes while safeguarding consumers’ interests.

Now in its second phase, the project is focusing on the ‘additionality’ that greater access to more granular smart meter data could bring to public interest actors – including national and local government, policymakers, and regulators – as well as how this greater access might help to meet the challenges of decarbonisation, especially around heat.
