‘Bonfield Review’ Newsletter

12th August 2016


The Review team continue to make progress on finalising the report for publication.

Discussions with Ministers and across Government are being planned to brief new colleagues on the progress with the Review and the outcomes.

We plan to publish the Review report as soon as we can and will keep you informed regarding when that will be.  We appreciate your continued patience in the meantime.

The Review Report: Progress so far………….
As the Review team continue working through the report, a number of organisations and schemes working both inside and outside of the Review have started to take action in line with the proposed recommendations.  These include:

Solutions for Smart Meters

The Government response to the consultation on the delivery model and regulatory requirements for the Alternative Home Area Network was published on 27 April 2016 and can be found here:


Regulatory provisions to aid this came into effect in July 2016.

This will help ensure that all premises in Great Britain can benefit from smart metering as soon as possible and more complex installations are managed in a cost-effective and coordinated manner.

This week…. Next week…..
There have been no meetings this week due to the August holiday season and setting up of the new department. We will be back in the next week or two.
