I agree with your sentiments regarding the benefits to consumers. I have had smart meters installed for a couple of years and am now actually paying a higher tariff despite the reduced costs to the utility company....!
My view is that any savings can only be realised and maintained for the consumer (and society at large) by automated controls using data from the metering.
Security is part of the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications (SMETS) and Home Area Network (HAN) documents - version 2 of SMETS and the HAN specification are due for consultation over the next few months I understand.
Are you familiar with the details of the various specifications, proposals, etc. so that your security concerns related to the details? Or are your concerns of a more general nature?
