Wellington Energy UK

In early 2011, Belfast, Northern Ireland based Wellington Energy UK was launched to explore the UK and European smart meter markets to determine if Wellington Energy's significant US metering experience could offer value internationally. Shortly after, Wellington Energy UK added a representative office in London's Central Business District.

Much like the United States, the United Kingdom's vision is for every home in Great Britain to have smart meters, giving customers far better information about, and control over, their energy consumption than today. The UK would like to effectively complete this smart meter rollout in 2020, well ahead of previous plans.

The six year long implementation will entail significant acceleration of a process normally scheduled to take twenty years. Nearly 53 million electric and gas meters will need to be replaced and over 30 million households and small businesses will need to be visited. A substantial financial investment of over £12 billion will be required to unlock even greater valued benefits.

Wellington is currently evaluating business partnerships in the UK to offer expertise and to promote global strategies.
