Opus Energy, a U.K.-based business energy supplier with offices in Oxford and Northampton, has awarded new projects to Siemens, IMServ and UPL in order to meet customer requests to manage their energy usage via smart metering technology.

Of Opus Energy's customer base, 30% of SMEs and 20% of corporate customers have a smart meter installed. The company says the new projects will help it achieve its target of installing smart meters at 36% (40,000) of its customer sites by year-end.

The announcement follows Opus Energy's survey of 500 business leaders that found respondents saw benefits of installing smart meters, including accurate meter readings and bills, as well as real-time visibility of energy consumption.

"Customers with smart meters are able to reap financial savings and become more energy efficient. We want to ensure that Opus Energy's growing customer base can take advantage of smart meters and the benefits that they bring, so we’re very happy to announce these new projects," says Andy Nash, director of operations.

More information, including an FAQ and details on costs, can be found on Opus Energy’s smart meter website, smartmeter.opusenergy.com.
