The Smart Prepayment Forum (SPPF) provides a forum to identify risks and issues; and potential solutions, specific to smart prepayment associated with the gas and electricity smart industry in GB

It seeks an agreed approach to support the transition from legacy prepayment to smart so that the run-down of the legacy arrangements is achieved in the most efficient, coordinated way to drive benefits for the end consumer.

The SPPF also includes a Withdrawal of Legacy Prepayment Forum (WLPF), which aims to provide a forum to:

  • discuss the risks and issues previously considered under the BEIS’ Cost Control & Benefits Realisation Group (CCBRG) as well as those identified by the WLPF;
  • create a plan for the withdrawal of legacy prepayment services and equipment and shared with Ofgem, BEIS and CCBRG; and
  • identify any potential solutions to address identified risks and issues.

Please see Documents page for meeting dates and PPMF Products.
