Smart-Up is an EU funded project that will encourage vulnerable customers in those Member States that have embarked on the roll-out of Smart Meters to actively use their Smart Meters and In-House Displays to achieve energy savings. Previous studies have shown that Smart Meters do not lead to energy savings in the residential sector unless households actively use them and modify their energy-use behaviour. Our project will fill this gap, as well as raise awareness on demand response services.
To increase the active and effective use of smart meters and in-home displays (where fitted) by vulnerable consumers
To encourage vulnerable consumers to change their energy-related behaviours in response to improved feedback information
Enable vulnerable consumers to make significant energy savings, reduce their fuel bills and seize further opportunities that may be offered by demand-response services
