- Understand the future business implications of the DCC: What will the commercial model for the DataCommsCo (DCC) look like? Will it free the industry or constrain developments? How will this service be used to add value through supporting new users, or does this create too much risk?
- Consumer insights: Effective customer engagement is vital to ensure smart meter installation is completed efficiently and brings benefit to customers and the environment. Discuss how the UK can avoid the shortcomings of other national smart meter deployment plans that have seen plans changed, abandoned or put on hold due to customer opposition.
