||<p>The larger energy suppliers have provided yearly smart and advanced meter installation
forecasts to DECC, which were published in the ‘Second Annual Report on the Roll-out
of Smart Meters’ in December 2013:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/second-annual-progress-report-on-the-roll-out-of-smart-meters"
figures will be updated in the next annual report based on the most recent projections
by suppliers. It should be noted that these figures do not include any of the smaller
suppliers’ estimates, nor take into account any growth in customer numbers.</p><p>DECC
does not project bill impacts on a quarter by quarter basis and DECC’s latest prices
and bills report from March 2013 contained projected bill impacts from smart metering
for 2013, 2020 and 2030:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/172923/130326_-_Price_and_Bill_Impacts_Report_Final.pdf"
.</p><p>The smart meter Impact Assessment published in January 2014, estimates that
even at their peak in 2015 the costs to the average consumer will be £6, or less than
0.5% of the average bill:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/smart-meter-roll-out-for-the-domestic-and-small-and-medium-non-domestic-sectors-gb-impact-assessment"
into account all costs and savings, by 2017 the average consumer will start saving
money, leading to an annual net saving of £26 in 2020, increasing to £43 a year in
2030 in comparison to a situation without smart meters.</p>
