Our managing director, Joel Stark recently talked with Energy Live News to discuss the Smart Meter rollout and the effects the current Covid-19 pandemic has had on the programme.

  • The likelihood that these running costs will continue to inflate as a result of postponed activity due to the pandemic.
  • Why the cost-benefit ratio was already on ‘shaky ground’ before the coronavirus due to “delay-after-delay-after-delay”.
