There are plenty of misconceptions around smart meters, but we’re here to help shed some light and get to the bottom of these myths to reveal the true power that smart meters hold for businesses.

To help, we’ve tasked our own leading expert, Bjoern Reinke. Bjoern is our Director of Data and Data Science, who played a key role in the implementation of our Drax smart metering programme.

There you have it: smart meters themselves don’t reduce energy consumption, but by giving you access to more detailed data around your energy usage, you’re able to make informed decisions for your business and customers.
