This paper uses a computational simulation model to evaluate the effectiveness of
the UK government's 2008-2010 policy on promoting smart metering. We develop
the computational simulation model based on well-established psycho-behavioural
theory. In the simulation, we also consider possible supplementary strategies for
promoting smart metering. With the computational simulation model, we test the
effectiveness of four possible strategy options and suggest their policy
implications. The context of the paper is a practical application of computational
simulation to the retail electricity market in Britain. The contribution of the research
are both in the areas of policy making for electricity markets and in the
methodological use of computational simulation for studying social complex
systems involving human behaviour.
