Deal signed for Scotland smart meter rollout

Engineering solutions company Actavo has signed a five-year partnership with ScottishPower to help deliver the roll out of smart meters in Scotland.

Actavo will supply around 780,000 meters to homes across central Scotland, including the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

ScottishPower chief corporate officer Keith Anderson said: “Smart metering will revolutionise the way our customers consume and monitor their own energy use, empowering them to make real behaviour changes and identify savings.

“This contract award to Actavo is a significant moment for ScottishPower in the delivery of smart meters for millions of people across the UK. There is a significant challenge to support climate change targets and we are determined to offer all our customers a smart meter by the end of 2020.”

Chief executive of Actavo’s Network & In-Home Division, TJ Malone, said: “Smart meters play a crucial role in providing the data and infrastructure needed to deliver the benefits of the new energy system for the UK. We are finally seeing the smart grid becoming part of our not-too-distant future.”
