Nov. 23 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K. wants to accelerate the
introduction of smart-power meters in the nation's homes,
completing installation as early as 2016.
The previous government's 2020 target "was insufficiently
ambitious," Greg Barker, Britain's minister for energy and
climate change, said today at the Bloomberg Businessweek
European Leadership Forum in London. "We'd like to go to 2018
or 2016 if possible."
