As the world starts to rebuild after lockdown, a green economy should be at the centre of our post-Covid-19 recovery. How do we guarantee that energy efficiency and smart energy systems are part of that recovery and ensure that no one is left behind on the journey to net zero? 

In July, NS Media Group energy editor Philippa Nuttall Jones interviewed Smart Energy GB director of corporate affairs Rob Cheesewright. The discussion explored the use of smart meters in achieving the UK’s net zero targets and what a smart energy future might look like in practice.
