Which company might well be keen to have you think about how smart technology can change our lives, at school… and at home?

Robert Cheesewright of Smart Energy GB, which commissioned the research, said: “It’s sad to see so many young people concerned for the future of the environment.

“We all know we need to do our bit to tackle the climate crisis – but often, it can feel quite overwhelming knowing where to start.

“But getting a smart meter installed is one small way to help us upgrade to a smarter energy system, aid the integration of electric vehicles and tackle the environmental emergency.

“Smart meters can’t solve climate change on their own but the energy system they help to create will supply more reliable, low-carbon energy to households, helping us manage our valuable resources more efficiently and ultimately leading to big environmental changes.”
