A study conducted by the University of Twente Enschede in the Netherlands, has found that five different types of smart meters produced readings up to 583pc higher than the actual energy used.

It is the first ever proof that smart meters, which the Government wants in every household by 2020 to improve the accuracy of people’s energy bills, are producing readings which are too high.

Scientists declined to name and shame affected smart meters but confirmed that those which give wrong readings in its tests have been sold and installed in the UK.

It means as many as five million UK households in which smart meters are installed, may have potentially received inaccurate readings. The inaccuracies are being blamed on the meter’s design, along with the increasing use of modern energy efficient devices.
