Recent research shows that people using gas and electricity smart meters are benefitting from understanding exactly where they are using energy in their home, in real time. Smart meters come with an in-home display that shows, in real time, how much energy is being used and its cost in pounds and pence, giving people greater insight for the first time.

So what is a smart meter and how could it help you manage your energy bills? Watch our video to find out.

Research by British Gas shows that 9 out of 10 households with smart meters are taking simple daily steps to manage their home energy use, such as turning off appliances when they are not in use.

As a result of these changes, more than half of those who use their smart energy monitor (54%) say they're saving money, with nearly two-thirds of those identifying savings of up to £75 per year.
