By the end of 2020, the UK government aims to roll-out 53 million smart electricity and gas meters in Great Britain. Smart technology promises benefits to consumers and energy suppliers, distributors and other users, introducing a new level of control and monitoring that can drive cost savings, lower energy consumption and enable more effective network control. However, to integrate and make use of smart meter data, stakeholders in the energy supply chain need to meet stringent DCC data communication and security criteria. As a result, many utility stakeholders will need to adapt their core systems.
During this webinar, Fiona Fulton, Smart Systems Manager at SP Energy Networks will share her company’s experience on the importance and implementation best practices for a secure integration platform. Neil Walls, Head of Smart Markets UK & Ireland at OMNETRIC Group will share how his company’s integrated solution enables communication between smart meters its customers’ business systems via the DCC, meeting the security and privacy requirements put in place.
