star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring that all homes and small businesses are offered smart meters by the end of 2020. The Programme is well underway with around 400,000 being installed every month.There are now over 8.6 million smart and advanced meters operating across homes and businesses across Great Britain. The rollout of smart meters is on track to deliver significant benefits, including putting an end to estimated bills, and is set to save consumers £300m in 2020 alone.</p><p> </p><p>Energy suppliers are responsible for planning and delivering the roll-out of smart meters, working within the legal framework established by the Government. Energy suppliers’ licence conditions require them to take ‘all reasonable steps’ to roll-out smart meters to all their domestic and small business customers by 31 December 2020. Ofgem is responsible for regulating energy suppliers against this obligation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The industry backed Additive Manufacturing strategy identifies that the UK’s High Value Manufacturing Sector can capture over £3.5bn per year (Gross Value Added) for the UK of the rapidly growing global market for additive manufacturing products (3D printing) and services by 2025, supporting 60,000 jobs in the knowledge economy and generating new, highly skilled employment opportunities. The industry led Made Smarter Review also identifies the contribution of digitally enabled technologies to manufacturing-including additive manufacturing- to the UK economy to be as much as £455 billion over the next decade.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Industrial Strategy, we are working closely with UK industry to create the right conditions for competitive, world leading manufacturing businesses to flourish and grow across the UK. Government recognises the importance of 3D printing and additive manufacturing and since 2012 The UK’s EPSRC and Innovate UK’s combined investment in additive manufacturing R&amp;D, including capital grants, has been well over £200 million, helping to develop and maintain UK capability in additive in the UK. In addition we have invested over £300m in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, including establishing the National Centre for Net Shape and Addictive Manufacturing housed in the Manufacture Technology Centre in Coventry. Its aim is to develop production-ready additive manufacturing processes, to overcome barriers to wide-scale adoption, and to work on legislative and standardisation issues to support the commercialisation of the innovation and new technologies such as 3D printing.</p>

star this property answer text <p>At this point in the lifecycle of such an emergent technology, we cannot make reliable estimates of graphene’s near-term contribution to UK GDP. There is a long lead-in time for new materials to be embedded in technologies, and the case of graphene is no exception. Graphene is increasingly gaining traction across the world. One report has estimated that the global graphene-based products market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.3%.[1] Over 140 companies in the UK have been active in graphene in the UK. The Government is playing an active role to support the development and exploitation of graphene – including through the projects funded by Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with universities, and suppliers and end users of graphene, and the foundation of the National Graphene Institute (NGI) and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC).</p><p> </p><p>[1] Graphene: Technologies, Applications and Markets, BCC Research, 2016</p>
