Re: Benefits

Good post. Just about your "demand management" point though. There is already an annual industry "auction" process to cover this whereby large companies (or distinct parts of large companies) can bid for reduced tarriffs on large energy supplies in return for accepting the risk that they may be cut off in the event of a national energy shortage.

Smart meters play no part in smoothing out or making that process more efficient.
