The UK government’s energy policy requires suppliers to install smart meters in the homes of all domestic customers and small businesses by the end of 2020. But with under four years to go, more than 48 million meters have yet to be installed. This means that, in order to achieve the target, installation rates must increase from the current 200,000 to more than one million a month.
Fundamental to meeting this deadline will be the availability of qualified meter installers. The sector is already facing workforce shortfall and even existing engineers will require additional skills in areas such as dual fuel capability and customer service.
Fast, effective and accredited training programmes and initiatives are vital if suppliers are to meet their obligations and avoid penalties.
