The national roll-out of smart meters has begun. The Data Communications Company (DCC) have triggered the government’s roll-out of 53 million smart meters to more than 30 million domestic and small business premises.
Smart meters will allow utilities organisations to tailor products and services to their customers while achieving significant operational efficiencies at the same time. But gaining access to smart metering data and functionality requires the correct security, integration, readiness testing and business assurance to be in place.
As the Data Service Provider (DSP) for the roll-out, we are at the heart of this transformation, providing the DCC data systems through which DCC Users will communicate with smart meters. As a signatory to the Smart Energy Code (SEC), we have also created a range of products for DCC Users to integrate with the DCC, implement smart business services, meet their SEC obligations and gain rapid access to smart meter data and functionality.
